Saffron Walden Steam Rally

Steam Rally Crank Up. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the local steam rally held just outside Newport. This was my first time at this show, I must say I was very impressed, lots of vintage cars as well as the steam engines and vehicles. I will certainly have this on my calendar for next year.

 Below: Stanley steam car, imported from the west coast of the USA to a Dutch museum in 1969.  Purchased by present owner in 1982 undergoing a seven year restoration with a complete new boiler, and rebuilt engine.
