Peter pops up everywhere Martin! He should be at the Cromford rally this weekend Martin, I haven't seen him since Newark Tractor Show last November. He has a SE museum at the Midland Railway Centre near Ripley, also a diesel roller with a Ruston engine stored there. He owns a Brough Superior car as well. A very knowledgeable chap.

Pete.

That's interesting about Ripley, any idea of opening times to the museum as my wife has bought me a ticket to ride on preserved railways and The Midland Railway is one of the places.

Difficult one that Martin. Run by volunteers so no set timetable, it is often closed when the actual rail museum is open. I (assuming he is there) will ask Peter this weekend at Cromford and get back to you on that. It is certainly worth a visit though, some interesting stuff in there.

Pete.

Their running days always used to coincide with the Fireworks event in November.

I can guarantee that this is a genuine engine. I know the owner and I know the man responsible for most of the copies, I can remember seeing them lined up under his bench ageing. He also made O type Gardners as well.

Have to say, the most enjoyable thing was the RC excavator tent! That and the farm foods...
Muddy? thats not muddy you should have been at Dorset in 2014, 6 casualties at the local hospital with broken bones.

I though that the standard of engines as Welland was excellent, one of the best engine lines I have seen for years. I would like to thank all the exhibitors who obviously made a great effort to give Peter Allen a good send off.
