Default Bressingham's 60th Anniversary 'Do' - continued

To add to Arfursteam's more organised record of the 60th anniversary 'Do' at Bressingham (Thanks Arfur), here a few extra pictures from Sunday's event. (Yes, I know some are similar to ones I've put on TT before, but we are still short of steam activity, so I hope you will bear with me.)

The unique Young's of Diss portable in action.


The other end of the drum.


A miniature Marshall getting ready to have a go.


Queen Mary, the Burrell Museum's showman's engine, heading back to Thetford for a Heritage Open Days event.


A miniature Fowler.


One of my favourite engines. The Duchess, a SCC Burrell that used to live in the next village to me and is now owned by a namesake of mine.


A&P 10 ton roller George from 1917.


Two more miniatures.


A different sort of road steam. Two magnificent Stanley steamers, one from 1910 and the other from the 1920s.


The 'footplate' of the 1910 Stanley. Note the lamp on the steering column pointing at the water level gauge.


A real oddity. A cut down loco for use in the restricted spaces of Becton gas works in East London.


And finally - I'm told this was what we get with Russian coal. Pity good old Welsh steam coal is no longer politically acceptable.


Thanks to everyone who took an engine and to the museum. It was a really nice event.
Bill.

Proff - don't know about the name, but it sounds like a good one. My thought was, "well, I expect it's mother loves it".
Bill.

Peckett 1900 is normally called by that name, itís even lower than the Beckton engines.

Some confusion here, the Flying Buffer Beam is Peckett 1900 at Quainton and was built for Courtaulds.

This is Beckton 25 Neilson 6087

I was stunned at the size of the coal being used on the narrow gauge too, very small indeed. Last time I had a batch like that at work I refused to use it. When I had a footplate ride on Gwynedd, it was fired before the run and not touched at all on the way round, some 2 miles. To be fair to it, once it had draught on it and was working, the chimney was quite clean.
