Malc's T80 and my C90 at the Acton Bridge gathering
This very nice Rudge Whitworth from the mid 1920s took its proud owner five years to restore
Note the hand-operated gear change
This Harley Davidson sports a big single SU carburetor
An Aveling steam roller enters the site
This lovely example is a Burrell
A couple of traction engines
This roller, 'Rosetta', is sometimes steered by our mate, Mike. Note the Thames Trader lorry in the background.
A contrast in front ends
One of the marine contingent - a steam-powered narrow boat (as they all should be!) on the adjacent Weaver Navigation.
The Weaver Navigation and Acton swing bridge. Steam tug 'Kearne' usually moors here, but maintenance on one of the downstream Weaver swing bridges means the bridge can't be swung, so 'Kearne' could not get up river to Acton Bridge.
There are always lots of 'miniatures' (small scale working traction engines) at these meetings
Malc has one of these Velocette Venoms in his garage in bits. We'll have to persuade him to get it fettled so we can have a ride!
A bit of Italian style in Cheshire - a lovely Gilera
A 2/3 scale replica Lister Railtruck, available in kit form if you fancy one!
Ivan joined us for a pint at the Bird in Hand, Knolls Green, not far from home on the return journey
Ivan's Honda Vision, Malc's Yamaha Townmate, and my Honda C90 at the Bird in hand
