|These three arrived in convoy from a club who like to preserve ambulances. Very sorry I didn't catch the name of the club from the driver who spoke to me as she struggled with approaching our gate from the "wrong" direction, the non-power-assisted steering, and her first experience of driving it to a show.
If you are from this club please get in touch with contact details and I'll give you a plug.
|This 1926 Avelling steamroller had just completed a ten-year rebuild. This included replacing the boiler and other serious work. Owner Robert Bate has returned it to its original green paintwork.|
This machine was supplied new to Acton Borough council in London and was later sold on to Robert McKay, a contractor from Leicestershire
|Thjis machine is truly massive, as can be seen in the bottom-right photograph as it passes the village hall and a suitably impressed bystander.
It is a 1929 Fowler Super Lion steam crane. It was originally used to deliver boilers build in Bilston all around the country and then to and install them - hence the crane.
It was restored thirty years agao by its present owner Len Crane.
