Burrell Traction Engine "Cock O' The North" being 'inspected?' by my father at an early 1960's Rempstone Rally. I'd taken him on the pillion of my AJS 650cc Twin when alterations were being made to the A46/A606 roundabouts when their site was flooded on the run home to Doncaster. Yup, Dad got his feet wet! If memory serves me right(?) this was following the John o' Groats - Land's End run by the loco.. Wasn't that when Jack Wakefield owned the locomotive?
