GWR 3803

This morning we took a walk up to the station to see the steam engine running on the Battlefield Line today. This is the station building.

This class 08 looks very smart in what looks like a recent paint job.

GWR 3803 arriving at the station. She is a 2884 class of 2-8-0 steam locomotive designed for heavy freight work for the GWR (Great Western Railway) and was built in 1939. C. B. Collett's 2884 class is a development of G. J. Churchward's highly capable 28xx class of heavy freight locomotives of 1903 which were the first engines to pull 2000 tons.
