3205

Popped over to Shackerstone and Market Bosworth at the weekend to take some recordings at the Battlefield Line’s Start of the Year event. It was a cold drizzly day but a warming cuppa and tea cake in the Victorian Buffet soon put things right. Two locomotives were in action on the day, G.W.R Collett 2251 Class 0-6-0 No.3205, incidentally,  on its last appearance before a return to the South Devon Railway and The Furness Railway Trust’s Austerity 0-6-0ST ‘Cumbria’. The Austerity  had a spot of bother and spent some time in the shed before getting out on the line and performing some stirling work with the long rake of coaches. Enjoy.
