    3801 back in steam

    Locomotive 3801 Project | THNSW

    3801 has passed her boiler test and is now able to run at 245lbs of pressure for the first time in many years. I'm looking forward to seeing her on the rails again, Garrets are nice but there's something special about the 38s

    I'll have to find out what time it leaves Thirlmere to watch it through Douglas Park .

    I haven't followed any previous Posts on 3801, but always pleased when a Tea Kettle is back on the rails & moving as they were designed to & not rust away in some lonely back block.

    Congratulations to all concerned.

    WooHoo, hopefully it will be down this way in the second half of the year, I still like chasing the 38s even better than the Garrett.

    I was really looking forward to seeing it again, my Grandfather built the boilers on the 38 Class, but I just read on Stalkbook that Transport Heritage's relaunch on march 28th has been postponed.

    Looks like a driver having a sneaky fag before moving out.

    Fantastic, I love steam, having grown up just around the corner from the Beyer Peacock Loco works in Manchester, where nearly 9000 steam locos were made, many destined for Aussie. As young boys, we all went "train spotting", and a great many of us wanted to be engine drivers, steam of course!
