Didcot - May 2013

After our brilliant day out at Didcot in 2010, we decided to return. This time two pannier tank locos were booked with everyone getting a drive in the morning and another in the afternoon, however a shortage of drivers meant that No 3738 was the only engine in steam on the day. Unfortunately the day didn't live up our previous visit, whilst we had a good time it turned be an expensive good time with limited driving although we did get a bit of a refund. Ah well, you can't win them all!

After lunch with members boilers well stoked, it was time for the group photo while 3738 had her needs satisfied.
