In the life of the HSTs
Roger Winnen & Martin Duff
A very special open day was held at Bristol St Philips Marsh to celebrate this event with the naming of a Power Car in honour of its designer Sir Kenneth Grange who also designed the first Kodak Instamatic Camera. With a large fleet of other diesel engines in attendance together with the Royal Scot this event proved a sell out on the day with over 3500 people passing through the gate on the first hour. Taking photographs presented a problem at time with the large influx of people, however the masses soon let their feelings known to individuals who got in the way. Proceeds were donated to the Springboard Charity.
