Notes : 
(1) This special train was for railway staff from East Midlands Trains, Network Rail, South West Trains, plus guests, and raised funds for the Samaritans charity.
(2) This is the first known visit of an H.S.T. to Swanage. The previous attempt was 'The Cotswold-Purbeck Express' on 28/09/13, however that only got as far as Corfe Castle due to gauging issues. 
(3) 43064+44054+42121+42120 carried temporary 'South West Trains' branding especially for the occasion. 
(4) Motive power in use on the Swanage Railway included G.W.R. 0-6-2T 6695, 08436, 33111 & 33202 'Dennis G. Robinson'.
