Another Day on 3803...

Hi there. Today I was back on GWR 2-8-0 No3803 once again. Driving today was Jan, with Jason as trainee. I arrived at 6am and; after going into the hot firebox to check the fusibles and the stays; I lit the loco up. Jan and Jason duly arrived and we began cleaning and oiling the engine. Just the normal five trains today, made up of four Mk1 coaches. An easy day really for 3803, and for us. Myself and Jason shared the firing whilst Jan drove. All in all a very uneventful but enjoyable day with the heavy freight. Again, another plug for the STEAM GALA on September 15th/16th...join us! Cheers all. Sam...
