I took a photo of the one they have at Bovington Museum.

That's the only running example in the world, I believe.

Not sure if it still runs as the last I heard it was in the museum store. I think the only other one is at Aberdeen proving Ground. Of course, these were the only 2 that were built.

I read somewhere that the Bovington example does (or at least did) run, but the one at Aberdeen wasn't maintained.
