    Welcome to the forum from Tasmania Australia. I have no idea where the Black Country is though! Please be sure to give us some detail regarding the Zed and the story behind it. The STIG says pictures are mandatory. :)

    Welcome @upstream from the sunny (occasionally) Royal County of Berkshire :)

    Just shout if you have any questions, although I believe @Brian4 has been doing his best to assist you already! Pics when you get chance as well please :snaphappy:.

    Cheers, Gary

    Great you have made it. Ask away and plenty of advice and comment here.
    Why move from AU's to the black country.

    One tale about the Black Country when Queen Victoria travelled through on the train the blinds had to be down.
