Cleaning 3803 at Shackerstone...

Hi guys. Tonight myself & Jason spent another few hours in Shackerstone Loco Shed cleaning the Great Western 2-8-0 No3803. Believe it or not it is fairly quiet at the railway during the week and, whilst chatting away over a hot cuppa', you can get a fair bit of work done. Jason spent the evening polishing the GWR green livery of 3803's tender whilst I went whacko with the Brasso in the cab and cleaned every piece of copper pipework or brass that I could find! The engine is looking sharp now and long may she do so. Thanks guys - Sam...

Hi Sam, It would be nice to see a shot of that clean and shiny Cab brightwork after your intensive cleaning session with the Brasso.

Hi Emma, We tried to take a shot but as it was dark in the shed it was blurry! In the daylight it probably looked brill! :) Sam

Sounds like it looked great, I think you must keep the 'Brasso' company going! LOL :-)
