    As an aside, I love the title of this thread and the due reverence carried throughout.

    No John, Bunchie or even Jonny baby, just plain old Mr Bunch.

    Correct..... For the record it's not worked for over 20 yrs and its owner definitely wouldn't sell.

    Even so, he still might have his reasons to sell it.

    Anyway now that every class 4 under the sun has been suggested, we just need to wait for the official announcement.

    And it's not far off a return to traffic, can't see it being popular with SVR supporters, flogging off a machine that's had money spent on it then flogging it straight away.

    It would be one for the owners, the 75069 Fund, and I've no idea what their agreement with the SVR would say about it.

    Although hopeful it isn't the case, it depends on the agreement. 6960 was on a run and restore agreement, it was returned to working order then promptly sold.
