Hotspur steams !

A 'pleased as Punch'  Barry gently coaxes Hotspur out of the shed area with the loco's first steaming run.
We were delighted on Saturday (12th July) when Hotspur was steamed up for the first time following the fitting of the loco's new boiler. All was good with just one or two tweaks required,so big smiles all round with particular pats on the back to Ray H & Barry who have been involved with the major part of the work on the loco.
