To be honest I'm a bit surprised - I'd have thought that the front of the coop would have been stronger than that..... :?

The Vic Berry train yard was cleared quite a few years ago - mid 90's I think and its probabily a car park/houses/warehouse/business park etc now, so I doubt whether the fire occured there. I do like my trains in blue.

Vic Berry. Notable due to the unusual practice of stacking Locos and coaches as you would carsYou're right datsuncherry, Berry's closed in the early 90's after a tramp dossing in a stack of coaches set it on fire, sending a large quantity of asbestos into the Leicester sky. It was shut down straight away.More unusual picshttp://www.derbysulz...m/vicberry.html

Everyone should have a go in a R4 at least once! That one looks like a real prospect... (I really must stop thinking like this...)Is that old enough to have the powerhouse 747cc lump?

Schmokin'!!!I know, I learnt to drive in my dad's one - R4 TL (Total Luxury?), and was supposed to be having it for my first car, but the old fella argued with a VW Golf, and lost. So I bought a 1979 (V) 4GTL (Grand Tourer Luxe?) with the crazeee 1108cc lump.I've never fully recovered.....

Saw an early R4 at the Ace last year. Lovely thing. I hope that one is in the hands of an enthusiast and doesn't get put out for the tow truck :?
