A restored 1952 steam locomotive is to be the star attraction at a Dorset steam gala.

The Standard Class 2 No. 78019 on loan from the Great Central Railway will be running throughout the Swanage Autumn Grand Steam Gala until Sunday.

The locomotive was restored in 1998 and worked on the Nottinghamshire line for ten years.

The Duke of Gloucester steam locomotive was originally due to appear but has developed a mechanical fault.
