Thanks mate,
Prescott is good but a tad short, by the time you get into the groove its over, still very enjoyable.
Good luck with your build.

I was lucky enough to be sat in the car when the heavens opened, quite a few people got drenched and went home early. A shame really because it picked up in the afternoon and was quite warm.

Re: Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway 15 June 2014

Another excellent day out, I again turned up in my Avenger Tiger.
There were a few Rootes cars there with a number of IMPS (see photos).
The weather was kind and so were my fellow Impers.
Next show at this location is 14 September.
