Vandals Wreck Historic Train Carriage

Train 3

8:16am 22nd March 2014

Volunteers at Swanage Railway have been left distraught after vandals spray painted one of their historic train carriages with graffiti.

The damage happened between midnight and 6am on Saturday 15th March at the station.

Sergeant Jon McCarthy, of Purbeck police, said: "This crime has caused a vast amount of expense and inconvenience to the railway company which is predominantly run by volunteers for the benefit of the public.

"This crime is extremely distressing for them and they face hundreds hours of restoration work to put this right and could not have come at a worse time of year with Easter just around the corner.

"I have released three images of the graffiti in the hope that someone will have knowledge about those responsible. I urge any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward as soon as possible.

"All calls will be treated with the strictest confidence."

No arrests have been made.
