And the SRT has not changed much since then. Some beauties here but the SRT is worse than Thai Airways

Judging by the construction of the tender and all the valve and pipework in front of the boiler (next to the driver) I would suggest oil. Several preserved heritage locomotives in the UK now run on oil as coal generates sparks that can set alight to the track-side environment.

There are quite a few railway preservation groups in the UK.

The Swanage railway is close to where I used to live in Poole and I often used to take the train to Wareham and get the branch line to Swanage. One I was lucky enough to ride the footplate all the way.

Wonderful to see such beautifully preserved locomotives in action. Well done SRT and I hope they continue providing a tourist service. Several preserved old steam locomotives can be seen on static display at several railway stations throughout the country. I have seen and photographed some at Chiang Mai, Lampang and Kanchanaburi (below):-

I have some photos somewhere taken at Chumpon station and there are several locomotives down the central reservation. I will root them out and post them here later.

A wonderfully preserved line which I also know well. I had an elderly Aunt who lived in Swanage. The view of Corfe Castle from the line is spectacular.
