If you think your office is hot spare a thought for Swanage Railway fireman Jon Cooper. Jon has to deal with temperatures of up to 45 degrees as he shovels coal into the fire of a 1920's U Class steam locomotive<br />

It's a busy time of year for the heritage railway line as holiday makers enjoy 5 mile trips by the Dorset coast which can start from Norden to Corfe Castle and down to the Victoria seaside town of Swanage (pictured)
