Bessie has provided invaluable road miles since she went into my service almost 7 years ago. At that time the first rumblings of the recession were being felt, and she's continued on her merry way through the worst times. It seems rather ungrateful to be changing her now, but in less than 20 hours time she'll be history. Together we've travelled just over 100,000 miles, but now is the time to part company. Bring on her replacement!
Bessie on the day her new livery was added, and she got covered in mud on the return from Shiptonthorpe!
