Thomas The Tank Engine Replica, called V.G.'s Express 

I was bought from Thainstone Mart September/ October 1999 and I am based on a Cushman golf buggy.  I am powered by a Kubota 3 cylinder diesel engine
My first outing was at Alford Transport Museum in May 2000 and I have been going there for the last 16 years and was popular at all games and rallies in the North-east earning thousands of pounds for various charities.
I have now been upgraded with a Massey Ferguson 4 wheel drive that my boss bought from Thainstone Marts' most recent sale and I am now looking for my new forever home!
