Recently, the branchline I worked for was shut down (thanks to Dr. Beeching) and I was found out of work. I went over to the British Railways offices in London, and they re-employed me to Doncaster Works. Here is the story of how I fixed up an engine from the scrapyards. Enjoy!
About this creation

I bought the engine over at a strange scrap yard, and paid the manager 142 for her. As soon as I got back to the engine sheds, I looked her over very carefully.

The first thing I did was clean out the cab. There were many cobwebs, spiders, and a mug of coffee that passed its expiration date twelve years ago!

Afterwards, I took a look inside the saddle tanks. The feed pipes were damaged, and the interior boiler was missing a few tubes.

Next job was the cylinders. Again, there were some minor difficulties with the pistons, so I took a closer look.

I took them apart and realized that the piston rods were full of holes, replaced them with newer, better rods, and finished up the job.

Next I had to tinker around with the dome, fix the sand tubes, and add more sand to the storage.

After adding fresh Welsh coal, I cleaned off all of the meters and gauges so they could run like clockwork again.

About this time, my fiancee showed up and said, "How about a ride, sugar bun?" I filled her up with water (not my fiancee, the engine), scooped in some coal, and off we went.

I had my doubts at first, but I love my job!
