Over the weekend just gone we finally steamed Victoria for the first time of 2020! What a long time it has been without her, I think the last steam up was around Christmas time last year. Anyway, she was steamed and then had her steam test, which we are pleased to say she passed with no problem. We then decided to visit our friend just a few miles away and have a lovely afternoon chuffing around his field so we could all get back up on her footplate and remember what a great place it is.
Here are a few pictures from what can only be describe as a wonderful day…
First time off the drive in 2020 but she is looking lovely.
Made it to the field ready for some play time.
Sorry she hasn't her face on but she was having a day off today.
Lloyd taking it easy while admiring the view.
Victoria's friends taking pictures.
Jack and Harry having a go round the field with her, just making sure we could all remember how to drive her and steer.
Happy selfie, Wendy has a new camera and this picture took a while to take as she took video's and chopped out people, you can see that she nearly chopped herself out here but we had waited long enough so this had to do!

Homeward bond, after an excellent afternoon it was time to head home, thank you David for letting us use your field.
Happy team on the footplate, look at their smiles.
Off into the distance.
It was a great day and with all that has happened and not happened this year it felt great to be back out with her, hopefully there will be a few more steamings in 2020 but we are looking forward to 2021.
