We then had a chance to see four of the new Unicorn 3 models and pick up some bits and pieces. 
I must say that the Bailey management and staff went out of their way to show us round and answer questions. They were very honest with us and answered all of the questions asked. In all there were about 350 visitors and the tours took most of the day. Thanks' to all of them for this opportunity to see the new Unicorn S3 being manufactured
