An Evening at Shackerstone...

Hi guys. This evening myself, Eddie & Jason made the journey to Shackerstone to do a couple of hours of cleaning on 3803. The big Great Western engine; particularly when you have a Foot-Ex to do; is arguably far too large to complete all of its required cleaning within a couple of hours and so we thought we'd have a bit of a crack at it tonight. Then, when we come in for our turn on Sunday, we can finish the job properly. It is an engine crew's responsibility to make sure that the locomotive is fit and ready for the day, and this always includes the cleaning! After a few hours scrubbing the locomotive's substantial framing we decided to call it a night. Roll on the weekend! Best Regards, Sam...
