SWANAGE CARNIVAL AND REGATTA
This must do event has so much to offer everyone, from the magnificent two mile carnival procession, vibrant with dance, sound and colour, to the beat of live bands playing in the carnival marquee.
Originally numbered 4488, 60009 Union of South Africa was built for the LNER in 1937.
It was named after the then newly-formed Union of South Africa, although it had previously been allocated the name "Osprey" on 17 April 1937, when it came out of the paint shop on 29 June. "Osprey" name plates were fitted to the locomotive during the 1980s and early 1990s due to the politics of the time. Its name has since reverted to Union of South Africa. The works number of Union of South Africa was 1853; the plaques are located in the cab itself and not on the exterior cab sides as is the usual practice.
Whilst this locomotive is rostered for the trips listed, it cannot be guaranteed
