Hi George.

I think that the Connoleys Gavioli is now the 110-key "Southsea" Gavioli, belonging to Graham Atkinson.

Maybe the experts out there could confirm this!

Looking at the old photos and one of the ex South Sea 110 key Gavioli, it looks at could be the same one in the old photos as I saw the ex South Sea 110 key Gavioli at GDSF 2009 when it was being used for the Burville stage show.

Good evening George.

I really like the collection of photos you are frequently posting, particularly the ones of Gray's scenic ride and Gavioli. Amongst the collection would you have any Of Gray's engines, particularly Burrell Lord Lascelles and maybe the Steam Yachts.

All the Best

Ben

Thanks for the photo's George. I think we all tend to forget how large and magnificent these scenic rides actually were.
