3803 Gotherington 3 June 2010

28xx 2-8-0 3803 makes a spirited departure from Gotherington on 3 June 2010 with the 09:28 service to Toddington, during the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's GWR 175 Festival of Steam. Note that Gotherington's as yet uncommissioned home signal is position on the 'wrong' side of the line, due to sighting problems on the tight curve. As this was one of the first workings of the day, a good exhaust effect was guaranteed, however later on the high temperatures ensured there was hardly a wisp of exhaust.
