Great find, the south west must be the best place in the UK to live for engines! There's always some great, unusual finds and always some good stuff on ebay from there Sad Yes I'm jealous, as we find nothing in this area as the main industry was coal mining and the only things used were shovels, picks and pit ponies (only one still alive and in a museum now). Good luck with it and don't forget the pics. Smile

Great looking engine mate and the pump goes well with it, bet you had a smile from ear to ear when you finally picked it up. Can't wait to see it all finished.
