Here are the engines i was aprenticed to in england when i was younger
1 Peter Cradocks Allchin Knapp

I was one of the original great dorset road builders
2 John and Barnaby Newtons Burrel Progress

Saturday nights at stourpane
3This is the first engine i was aperenticed to a Wallis and Stevens 6 ton oilbath tractor Pamela owned by
(at the time ) Doug Roberts

When i was younger and smaller i did a roadside replacement of the fusible plug on her just outside saisbury
4 Golliath Wallis and stevens 3 ton tractor owned by a wonderfull man Doc Gilles Romanes

I know there are three half sized models based on goliath in WA and i must catch up with there owners
These are not photos i have taken as digital photography was still a very expencive hobby when i was a steam aprentice but these are my teachers

I would like to know how my old employers fowler steam plouging engine i was rebuilding turned out the boler makers set us back with that one but thats another story  i hope you enjoy these pictures
