All fuelled up, 7903 is pulled by the diesel shunter up the Swindon & Cricklade Railway track to the Hayes Knoll running shed for Colin Henderson the Cornhill Insurance boiler inspector to make his final checks.
The close-up of the wheels turning shows them moving under their own power for the first time in nearly 40 years.

We see the first load of coal being loaded into the tender
