Gentlemen,
Yet again I go to Enstone with two aims 1. to see all my friends out of hibernation and 2. to make a few bob and as usual I have achieved both, well worth the trip and the so called Perman weather did not materialise :-))

Could not make it this time :-( , hope you all picked up a few bargains. At the moment I have five Stuart Turners in "conditions various" and need to concentrate my efforts on them. Unfortunately other interests take up some of my time and I'm off to Malvern Sun. to the Classic car show .

Mike,
The Rover and I have been out four times this week particularly Thursday and tonight to see 60163 Tornado thunder through Sandy Station on her way to Kings Cross Station London. Out next Sunday with the Rover, we are going to the Vauxhall Museum in Luton for the Annual Open Day.

It was a bit Brass Monkey at 07.45, no sign of Martin.....
Lots of optimistically-price stuff, a few bargains to be had after Kim had been through the stalls already!
Cooment by more than one person was that if there had been less sellers buying, it would have been very bare, if that makes sense.
Saw a little blue water-cooled single over on the far side of the stalls about 2/3rds of the way up, didn't recognise it, did anyone else see it?
Dan was there, didn't see anyone else apart from PTFE and Len Gillings, we left to go to Liverpool at 9.05, back home at just gone 8pm.

There by 8am & away by 10.00. The run up on unoccupied roads was as much fun as ever although I did get a milk tanker for a few miles! I saw Roland, Dan, Nick, Martin & Peter amongst others.
I bought no less than three Tiny Tim's, two of which are reputed to go! I just want one that both runs & generates & the rest can go upon their way.
I also found some Cold War avionic test kit very cheap & got a nice set of four unused mica insulated plugs from Dan. Nothing much else of note really. I took a photo of the little blue engine & will put it up later.
Prices did seem to be higher & several things I walked away from. There were a fair few people about but if they weren't buying perhaps the credit crunch is biting!
Regards,
Kim Siddorn

I had a message from Phillip Gallimore, apparently it was a Lauson Oil Test Engine, but I thought it a little overpriced at £275.00.

Ah. Two blue engines then! The one I saw was a pre war small Barnard with copper tube radiator.

Pretty little thing that, though I guess it should have been wearing the customary Bernard tin box.
