Looks like an excellent day out! The locomotive built from scrap metal - did it work or was it just a model?

It's a petrol engine, used to power almost anything that needs a belt to drive it :) Turnip choppers for animal feed, pumps, generators and so on.

He said it works from compressed air, not fired it up in case something melts :)

Those are some pretty cool old vehicles. I think the old fire engine looks really nice. The bicycles are cool too.

Wow, that certainly is impressive! The fact it works that is, not the risk of melting... :LOL:

Ah, so the steam fair is just about showing off different types of engines?

All sorts, lots of stalls selling stuff too, rides, fun fair stuff and ferret racing :)
