Lightning II, a Burrell traction engine, reached 100 years of age on 11 November 2013. This steam engine was responsible for starting Prestons of Potto during the Suez Crisis when the supply of diesel in the UK stopped.

Lightning II hauled bricks for 3 months in 1957 and so began Prestons of Potto’s logistics services. Happy Birthday, Lightning II!
