Classic Power Tuesday at Eastleigh, 29th March 2022: 47830

I almost didn't go, and it ended up a memorable afternoon - Classes 37, 47, 56 and 69. I was on the M27, returning rather earlier than expected from something else. The actual weather seemed better than the forecast, so to Eastleigh I went. I was still getting my bearings when 47830 turned up.
