Title: Hello form Cornwall
Post by: Samo88 on October 14, 2019, 07:55:34 am
Eh up all,

Just wanted to say a quick hello as a new forum member from down in Cornwall. Im originally from Stockport in south Manchester but managed to escape about 20 years ago.

Grew up on Landies trialing with my dad For Lancs and Cheshire as a kid (I was a kid, my dad obviously wasnt) but after loosing the old man in the early 00s I lost interest and went off the rails for a few years. Now in my late 30s Im just about back in the rails and early this year bought the first Landy of my own. (I know, about bloody time, and well done on waiting till they cost a bomb to buy)

Anyhow, got the 1981 series 3 in the below picture, Jan this year and have been massively enjoying making new memories and reliving life with the old man while bombing about in Wendy this summer.

Would be ace to meet anyone on here down our way. Or anyone who may have known the old man, his name was Roger Hopwood.

Welcome to the forum!

we're from the other sife of the bristol channel, near swansea.

Maybe if you fancy a roadtrip next august bank holiday you could come along to Apedale Vally Light Railway in Staffordshire where we all descend from various parts of the country & europe, for beer, chat and a very large barbecue!  Celbrt
