This was restored from almost not-working at all to be a capable machine operating with several Cornish and Devon showmen. Steve the purchased the ex-Pickmere Lake, ex-Barry Wareham Ark and restored that as well getting it out on the road.
Finally Steve got membership of the Showmen's Guild of G.B. and purchased the ex-Whiteleggs Ltd, ex-Kefford Trabant and ran this before selling the lot in Winter 2006/7.
