Haha, no Keith, I am a Derbyshire resident. I just spent the best 27 years of my life either driving them or laying under them! Very Happy

Pete.

Hi Pete,I too was in road haulage for many years in the early days we were running ERFs at that time we were gardener powered,4 LWs to 8 LXbs we later went onto Cummins when gardeners stopped making engines,i did start my career on the footplate on main line steam but when diesels came in my shed was closing and they wanted to move me to another shed ,ihad got married and got my first house and did not want to move so i moved to road haulage,and i am now into stationary engines which is all new to me but i am learning.Best Regards Keith.
