    The heavy showers of earlier in the day had abated, the wind was dying down, so having spotted the possibility of early running I set off for Wilpshire. This could be my last chance to see No9 on Wilpshire bank. I was held at some temporary lights, then stuck behind a Learner at 20 mph in a 40 zone with no chance to overtake. I arrived at Wilpshire but parking was difficult and left me with a 2 or 3 minute walk to the line; it was going to be touch and go. When I got about 30 yds from the bridge there was a whoosh and plenty of smoke . . . B*GGER!

    45231 and 7 Mk1s again today. I think it's safe to conclude there is no crock of gold at the end of this rainbow !
