This Olympic venue has become a summer favourite with Steam Dreams

Weymouth's Georgian seafront is an impressive backdrop to the long arc of fine, golden sand. Other attractions include the Nothe Fort, a nearby Victorian fortress.

Trip Specific Information

This trip will be diesel hauled between Weymouth and Southampton on return journey.

Dining passengers boarding at Southampton will be served a brunch on the outward journey and a two course meal on the return journey.

Now in its 700th year, this renowned Carnival will be returning with a fairground along the seafront as well as many other exciting attractions.


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
