It is a tranquil scene at Market Bosworth Station. The sun shines and spring birdsong fills the air as ex G.W.R Class 2884 2-8-0 Heavy freight locomotive No.3803 whistles in the far distance. After a lengthy pause, punctuated with birdsong, the train arrives, shattering the peace at the country station. The huge locomotive, on loan from the South Devon Railway, is in immaculate condition. Burning coals spill out from underneath the engine and smoulder on the sleepers as the powerful engine gets the train underway heading towards the end of the line at Shackerstone. The Station Master steps off the platform onto the track, dousing the smoking coals with a bucket of water as the train is heard accelerating away into the distance.
