Day 259

2016/05/20 London/Watford - Stockport (England)

Only a short detour on the way from the hotel to the motorway M1 there is the railway subway “Bridgeo-Bridge”. At this bridge the legendry 'Great Train Robbery'  took place on August, 8th 1963 .
Here the moneybags were loaded from the train into the standing by getaway cars. Many movies tell the story of the robbery, e.g. 'Buster' or 'Prisoner of Rio'

We continued our tour over the M1 and later on picturesque english roads along fields, grasslands and through charming villages.





At half past three we reached Stockport and visited Kevin Hicks, a friend of Wolfgang. Kevin manufactures highly polished model cars and sculptures. Among others he builds the trophies for the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach/California.


In the Delo-Stüberl there will be a mirror finished model as well.



Just as we reached Kevin's house, the right lower ball joint on Andre's Delorean broke down, but thanks to Wolfgang half a hour later the ball joint was replaced and the damage solved.



…and today we reached the 40,000 km mark (25,000 miles) on our tour!
