But it wasn't long before
He broke down, then he was fixed, then he PROPERLY broke down!
I've broken down twice in my life, both times have been in The Colonel, and both times have been on the A512 between the M42 and Loughborough.....If you're thinking of renting him, I'd dodge this particular part of the world!
When he broke down properly, there was a loss of power followed by an all ingulfing cloud of steam! And that was the beginning of his restoration!
He now comes fully equipped with a brand spanking reconditioned engine!
