Swanage Railway Footplate Ride

Strong country mural

I had to go back to Swanage Railway Station today to put a coat of anti graffiti resin over the poster mural, mainly to protect it from the soot and dirt which comes off the steam engines.

About half way through my work a wasp did a suicide dive into the resin compound, so I thought as it had sacrificed itself I should make a piece of art from it, possibly to become a paper weight or pendant sometime in the future.

When I had finished rollering the rest of the resin over the mural I was offered a Footplate ride on one of the engines.

WOW! I loved it!

Even got to toot the whistle while I was there!
