That is good. How much?

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Cost me £10 incl. postage. Sure they can be found cheaper.

I hope you don't mind me Miscling in on your Misc thread, David, but I have two pumps to proffer here.

Image
Texaco pump bought in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Not sure what scale, it's 9cm high and a hefty little diecast lump of metal.

Image
The Chevrolet hand-pump bowser was bought in San Angelo, Texas, and it's 13cm tall. Off the beaten track but not that far north of Sydney, there was an old country service station which had one of these hand-pump bowsers. We'd rock up, a bunch of boys on trail bikes, and pump it up to the top with the red petrol that you'd see in the glass vessel above, then each of us would wheel ourselves up with our tank lids open and we'd swiftly swap the bowser nozzle from one small bike tank to bike tank as the fuel fed down slowly via gravity feed.
