There are few engines I'd like to see, running or not - was a lovely SEM front cover pic quite a number of years ago of a Day engine which looked like it had been washed up on a beach for instance.

Nick,
That Day engine surfaced at one of the Tatton Park rallies some years ago, where I recognised it for what it was, dumped with some other 'for sale' items in front of an exhibitor's Wolseley WD. He had no idea of its historic value; I photographed it and the photo appeared on the front cover of SEm and was used by the editor on a few occasions since. I think the engine is now in the hands of a well-respected collector in Somerset.

Only one I've seen apart from the sectioned example in the Science Museum (which I don't think is on display any more).
