    Let's hope that the revival of operations at Ongar is not far away. Nice engine - I have personal memories of her as D2119 on the Hemyock line in 1967, and on Burry Port and Gwendraeth Valley line ten years later.

    Glad to see!

    I have fond memories of this engine, as she was the first I ever drove! She was our yard pilot at Williton during my apprenticeship in the works, most working on Braunton.

    I spent many shunting duties either on the front shunters steps, or on the footplate under the carefull guidence of Gareth learning all I could and it has stood me in good sted I feel :)

    I now own my own 03 thanks to the love for them inspired by 03 119. :)

    Cant wait to see her in action when im in the area!

    Woody!
