This is the final part of from Saturdays visit to Tees Cottage.
A miniature steam roller.
Rides for the children of all ages.
A Foden steam lorry.
A miniature Traction Engine.
This beautifully restored Traction Engine is full size.
That’s all from this outing. I’ve got a busy week but on Monday I'm going to Castle Howard for a few days. There will be a post or two before then and with a bit of luck one with some unusual views.
I really like the traction enignes, I love the smell as they drive past, the "little" attention to details too. We have an annual Steam Rally at Hollowell and they're always driving along the country lanes to the event and if you happen to be walking down the same lane it's a unique moment, though rather noisy :o)
Douglas, I haven't been to a big steam event this year. I'll have to try and get to the National Ploughing Championships next year. They are very awe inspiring.
Beautiful photos!!!Greetings, RW & SK
Happy you enjoyed them.
Wonderful engines to see Adrian.. there was a steam rally a couple of miles from me at the weekend and I only became aware of it as a Traction Engine drove passed.
Andrew, it's a pity you couldn't get to see them.
What a beautiful show, I love it.
So do I Bob. They are a breath of smelly air.
Just terrific, Adrian! All of it is great looking. I would love to take my grand babies and myself for a ride!
David, It's a long way to come for a ride on a tiny train.
What a fantastic old Steam Engine type tractor. The paint job is fantastic.
Horst, yes it is a superb job. No effort or expense spared.
It's interesting that you poke around the display of different steam engines and you have a detailed understanding of how they work. I would just roam around and find it interesting and not know the principle behind them
Red, I've always had an interest in them. I wish I had time to learn more or even the ability to recall what I once knew.
It is Garaham.
Some very interesting exhibits here. Must check this place out sometime.
Jay it is open several times a year but not always with the beam engine under steam.
They are beautiful; no wonder so many toys were modelled after them.
Maria, they are superb.
