|"Elsa" Over The Way|
Our first departure was timed for 10:30am, with the first DMU run leaving 30 minutes prior. 3803 was ready to come off shed just after the DMU went out and so, after taking coal, we ran over onto the train and coupled up.
The first run was a bit rushed due to a slightly late departure but the layover at Shackerstone upon our return allowed us to take a break. The railway has just started offering "All Day Breakfast"s on special event days and they are fab. I think they are being billed as the "Battlefield Brunch" and they are a taste sensation! We just had to partake...

3803 steamed and pulled well, as usual! Adrian, Dave and myself had a very enjoyable day and shared the firing between us. Thanks alot guys. 3803 had again provided us with a very good day indeed. That breakfast was brilliant - I can't stop thinking about it! The following photo is from Mr Hanks' archives and shows 3803 arriving into Bosworth...
Cheers Guys! Sam.
