    Great capture! Hard to believe it’s 60!

  • True Bill. I always loved this model, similar yet so different to its peers.

    Lovely shot Dave, this model with the suicide doors was pretty rare.

  • The breweries seemed to use them a lot as I recall, and as they & I are both from North Staffs. I saw them regularly
