Just in case you wondered where 31 271 is currently residing......LLangollen Railway

http://a1alocomotives.co.uk/31271-summary/

The one I picked out 85 101 is a bit of a fraud really.....it used to be 85 006, and is currently in a livery which it never carried in service. It was formerly owned by Pete Waterman, and now by a preservation group specialising in old AC powered locos. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_Locomotive_Group.

Its currently stabled at Barrow Hill Roundhouse near Staveley Derbyshire. Nice photo on the wiki page...with a Reliant 3-wheeler doing a solo photobomb.

Not a clue really, certainly not many on my part, probably 56~60 max and less (much less) on foot.

Actually about 80 miles more than that - I forgot to reset when I filled up, son went to Hamsterly the following day and also forgot to reset until he returned home.

So at the end of February, all of the random miles travelled in the Leaf, stopped the mile-o-meter at this...

last month this milestone was reached

So electric miles for the month 32708 minus 31679= 1029

But for the celebratory picture the number is 32708

Bit of head scratching to follow.

Probably did about 250 ish ICE miles in the Micra, as I retrieved it from loan, and we treated ourselves to a charger free day out :-D So at the end of the month the Micra mile-o-meter ticked around to precisely

Were you in Bucky Hill Neil?
My son has a house there although he is rarely in it.
I can never remember where he lives tough and always have to look it up.

I was going to snap my odometer yesterday but couldn't find the camera that is supposed to be in the car.

No don't think I've been there Steve, that was just a random milestone from Geograph which had 6 miles on it, which if converted to feet equated to my mile-o-meter reading at the end of January :-D

Well I have found a picture for the Micra end of month milage total of 66422.

..and a bit of trivia. Who knew the "Tesco Express" has a regular journey from Daventry to Grangemouth in Scotland.

March was a funny month for me, it began while I was in Spain and ended while we were all in lockdown! It has taken some time to work it out,
however before the portcullis fell I had clocked up:

217 in the C5
49 in the MX3
961 in the Dispatch
34 in the MX5
87 in the LS400
793 virtual miles on my motoring meander

Total 2141

A fabulous loco for that:
