Hi All,

Last Thursday the "Union of South Africa" visited Weymouth, and as I live less than 10 mins walk from the station, I went along with a friend to take a look.

The train arrived right on time at 13.45, unloaded, and stayed for about 10 mins before moving on to Yeovil to turn round.

We stayed in town for a while as there is a very nice micro-pub close to the station .....

And then went back to see the train leave at 16.35.

Here is a video I put together .....



The photos only show on the video for 6 secs each, so here they are separate ....























Hope you enjoy the video and pics. We spent the day at Swanage yesterday, so I will sort out the photos and videos from that day and post them sometime next week.

All best wishes

Kevin

Thanks for those photos and video Kevin.
You did well to leave the pub to see the return. Must have been tempting to have another pint.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
