The signboard that traveled with us to Brighton, suitably amended to show our success.  The wonderful engine-crews of Cornwall donated their appearance money to the fund and added a magnificent £450.

A trip to the lakeside, nearly a disaster when a regulator jammed shut and had to be 'persuaded' to work again.

I will post more when I have processed them.

Thank you Mike. What great photos. Please keep them coming. I am so envious with the selection of events you can take your engines to. We have nothing like it in NZ.I might have to investigate the cost of shipping my engine to the UK for a month or two so as I can catch up with some of you guys (and girls-sorry Lynn). Kind regards and best wishes for the rest of yours and other STW builders rallying season.Shane

Must admit I sometimes forget how fortunate we must be.
Here on the southcoast I think I have the choice of almost a rally every weekend during the peak season all within no more than 1.5hrs drive maximum. Even I hadnt realised how many there are which are so local to me.

Hi Shane

Don't be too fed up with no shows. There is not that many in Scotland either and they are all over 100 miles away for me. Nearest being at least 3 hours drive.
