Class 33 driver experience- Swanage Railway

Yesterday I had the experience on driving a class 33, 33111 on the Norden extension. Very enjoyable drive and two very different journeys. Going towards Wareham the loco controls were very responsive especially the loco brake (which is quite important!). Going back to Norden, not quite as responsive, the brake taking longer to find the braking point. Overall a very enjoyable experience and another off the bucket list.

Here are the pics


33111 was one of the last 33’s to work the Bournemouth/Weymouth pushpull.
