Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 7th September 2022

Great Central Railway Loughborough Leicestershire 7th September 2022
Signing on at 05.45 for a morning turn at the Great Central I found British Railways Standard 9F 2-10-0 92214 waiting on the pit. With Callum's help I cleaned out the remains of the previous day's fire and coaled up the grate for today's fire.

Here the 9F waits to be lit up in the early morning darkness. There was still 20psi pressure in the boiler so we were ahead of the game & she came round pretty quickly.

Good photo. Nothing suggests to me it's not back in the day.
Who oils round? Can in one hand and slush lamp in the other?

Hi Pete
A wonderful and interesting picture, which I like very much!
Very nice composition, and a treatment which looks like the good old days.
I was in two minds about visiting GCR today, but thought I would wait for the gala weekend.

Best Wishes, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!
