Default Unexpected discovery

Went out walking yesterday and called into the local steam museum on the way home whilst CFO went shopping next door. Lovely to see some great lumps steaming - gets better every time I call in. Some pictures attached - don't have Ubend account so can't post videos

Just about to leave when I noticed an anomaly. Walking over for a closer look I passed a bloke who had something in a vice which he was beating with a large hammer. I said " That's not a steam engine - it's got a spark plug" Turns out to be a Petter Junior which he had been give for nothing!. Jammy bedstead!
Had a nice chat with him and gave him url for the forum, so if a newbie turns up asking about a Petter Junior you will be ready for him. Engine plate included in pictures - number 46716.

Hi Martin,

I wasn't suggesting a software issue. I just though that someone on vBulletin Community Forum might be able to offer some advice.
Good luck.
