Play 3801 Return to Thirlmere 24 01 2020

I watched so many VHS tapes of this iconic steam locomotive growing up. Perhaps the most memorable was when it ran with the Flying Scotsman 4472 around Australia for the Bicentennial.

She’d been having boiler problems for many years, so it was such a delight to see her steaming again under her own power. Clara and I will need to head back there to check her out once she’s been repainted.
