The 30th August 2023 was a momentous day for the Swanage Railway. Following a six year restoration at the Flour Mill workshops in the Forest of Dean Adams T3 Class 4-4-0 No. 563 returned to the Swanage Railway. Now reunited with its tender which was restored at the Swanage Railway's Herston Works the locomotive gradually makes its way on the final leg of the journey home to Swanage seen here being towed across Corfe Common by Class 33 No. 33111.
