Short, Cold Visit to Shackerstone...

Hi all. A very quiet one today really. Popped over to Shackerstone for a few hours and, after signing on, made my way down to the Loco Works where I found Dave, Eddie and Pockets waiting. It was very cold. Pockets duly left as he had a few jobs to do at home so the three of us lit the trio of shed stoves to try and get as much heat inside as possible. More heat means less chance of freezing on 3803 and less 'sweating' on Sir Gomer and Blue Circle. With the three stoves banked up, Eddie did a few bits inside Sir G's firebox before we retired. It was far too cold & damp in the works, even with the stoves lit: it was actually warmer outside! So, after around 3 hours, we all left for our much warmer homes. I'll be back at Shackerstone next Sunday for more work on our lovely little locomotive collection. Sam...
