I have been busy lately, last weekend I visited the Great Central Railway and recorded some fine L.M.S locomotives at work. Unfortunately I managed to lose my glasses too.

This weekend I journeyed over to the Battlefield line to record the ex G.W.R Class 2884 2-8-0 heavy freight locomotive No.3803. Enjoy
