The Dominion of New Zealand

We had a bit of a posh visitor to Swanage this week and she was guest of honour at the Swanage Railway Grand Steam Gala. The weather was pretty awful and low cloud scuppered my plans of a photo of the train from the top of the hills. The sky in every picture is that horrible washed out white and there was nothing I could do about it.
Still, she did look impressive and it was good to see so many misty eyed chaps braving the morning rain.
For the steam buffs she is apparently an A4 Pacific, built in the 1930's and took 40 years to restore.
