You're not wrong there. One of my all time favorites. Looking forward to seeing it progress.

its odd they proceeded to build a good few deltics, but totally sucked the character out if the prototype. Is it a case of a grey suit somewhere objecting to a little flamboyance ? ☺

That was about the time of the beginning of a transition in UK business culture, when people who had been called clerks, and came to work on a bike, started being called Directors of Finance, and arrived in Jags that they'd bought for themselves with other people's money.

That culture thrives today. And even the local Councils are at it as well.....
