Swanage Railway – Purbeck Signwriting

I often do signwriting for Swanage Railway, sometimes wooden signs but more often signwriting on locomotives, carriages and I once painted a vintage van they take to events for publicity. This summer they restored two locomotives and I did signwriting on both, 34028 ‘Eddystone’ and 34072 ‘255 Squadron’.Eddystone had a full restoration and, after the whole locomotive and tender were painted, I took care of the numbers and lots of orange and black lining.255 Squadron had a less intensive restoration and just the cab numbers were needed doing by me, as it hadn’t had a full repaint.
