Hazel at Internal Fire. I'm staggered at the changes since my last visit in
June. From memory there are now 12 engines running. The big Rustons are a
study in near silent power, The Hamworthy runs better than any other I've
seen despite mild incontinence, and the Crossley VO7 has the delicious sound
one expects of a two-stroke semi-diesel. However the one that really made an
impact on my soul was the vast 3 cylinder Bellis & Morcom diesel. Oooh I do
like that :-) Apparently its only a baby!
Amongst today's visitors were two guys who drove down from Liverpool having
seen the letter in SEM. They went away smiling too.
I'm used to climbing over engines to get round my workshop but engines you
climb up are a new experience.....
