You could stop drinking but you would just be swapping one addition for another!

I'd be interested to hear the story around this particular collection. How did it come to light? 8) Proper barn find!

It's a Puffin 1960s engine. I had one of these but I moved it on.

This one has a clutch which mine did not have, so quite interesting at that price.

I am amazed about some Seagull collections. What is of particular interest is the quantity of some collections and the manner in which they are stored. i guess most are propped up against each other. In some case purpose made stands are made and used.

With the kind permission of Garry at Aratula, Queensland, look at this photo of part of a collection:-
