563LG to host first virtual conference on March 26th!

On 26th March at 7pm, the Swanage Railway Trust’s 563 Locomotive Group is hosting an online conference about the history and the ongoing restoration of our London & South Western Railway T3 locomotive No.563.

At this event, you’ll have the chance to hear more from the 563LG team, Nathan Au, Matt McManus, Steve Doughty, Nick Lloyd and Will Sheret about the work being done at the Flour Mill to return the engine to steam for the first time in 70 years.
