Strictly Bulleid II
(on the Swanage Railway)
JUNE 2024

🗓️ Friday 7th – Sunday 9th June 2024

It’s Swanage Railway’s second Strictly Bulleid event this June – a celebration of the 1940s Southern Railway Bulleid Pacific steam locomotive.

Bulleid Pacifics hauled passenger services from London to Swanage for nearly 20 years before being re-utilised in the 1960s for carrying Purbeck ball clay between Corfe Castle and Wareham.

Most of the 67-ft-long, 96 tonne locos will run the four-mile track beyond Norden for this special event.

There will be six Pacifics across the weekend:

  • 34081 92 Squadron
  • 34028 Eddystone
  • 34070 Manston
  • 35006 Peninsular & Oriental S. N. Co.
  • 34092 City of Wells
  • 34072 257 Squadron


Ticket prices depend on the day you’re travelling, and you have the option of buying a one-day or two-day Rover ticket.

Children are discounted and under fives go free.
