Assorted small working engines
« on: June 11, 2019, 02:56:43 pm »
I visited a local annual steam rally last weekend, small and full sized steamers in attendance plus vintage vehicles and a modest line up of smallish stationary i/c engines which I thought may be of interest to some:

What a wonderful variety of machines on display and in operation there Dave, but did I miss any steam engines in the mix?

Whatever the case, it looks to have been a grand experience with lots of interesting things to see!

Thanks for that.

Steam shows are dying out around here (the two local ones went in the last three years or so), so it's nice to see this. I like all the Listers.

Lister engines are relatively common in Canada, but they're also relatively undesirable for some reason. That makes my 5HP ball-hopper not worth too much....
