    Awful weather but for some reason I thought it was worth the three mile drive to get it going through Leighton Buzzard. It was doing a good 75 with no diesel shovage. Just one record shot complete with exhaust blowing down Bulleid style. [ATTACH]

    Well I don't think we were discriminatory against him cause he was Canadian. He just said stuff which went against logic.

    It has been sat in Bitton yard for many years. My understanding is that it is owned privately, not by the AVR. Photographed in 2021.
