Fortunately a warming fire had been lit the night before so 8F 2-8-0 48624 was not stone cold although it had no pressure on the boiler. After checking round firebox and smokebox to make sure all was well, a layer of coal, a load of wood and a pile of parafin-soaked rags later saw me light her up at about 06.15.
