Welland Steam & Country Rally 2017

Post #1 by Jeremy Rowland » Sun Jul 30, 2017 8:50 pm

I attended this event yesterday which was excellent :thumbup: just a few photos for you; the weather held off although it was at times very overcast, still a first class show worth your time attending.

A few more photos for you; the 'coffee pot' Scammell had been fitted with a 10litre Cummins in place of its Gardner 6LW engine, the lump was complete with a 'Jake brake' The Hetzer made by Skoda for the Germans during WW2 is as rare as the proverbial rocking horse do-do as is the howitzer version, can anybody give me the correct identity for the howitzer version?
Plenty to see and do at this show; as I say well worth your time. :thumbup: The owner of the Ford KA complained that his car had four flat tyres and a flat battery- very flat, oh and lowered suspension too. :lol:

I went to Welland on the Friday and took some photos mainly of plant, but also of some other things. Here's a selection to start:

Hi IBH it looked as overcast as it was on the Saturday although it did remain dry; was the Friday dry or did you get any rain? I didn't bother going on the Friday as generally there is not much action on the working field and most people go on the Friday for the auction.

I spoke very briefly to Harry but did not get the chance to speak to Dehane although I did see him over by Andy Thompson; he also brought a B100 Drott to the show that he has sold to Johnny Edwards. :thumbup: I also saw Mike Yates and Julian Carder but did not bump into Paul Walker.

Paul it is a top event with plenty to see in my opinion it's a lot better than the Great Dorset Steam Fair. :thumbup:

From memory it was cool and overcast with the odd light shower that didn't last long and became sunny in the early afternoon for a time.
A few more plant photos (tractors and Land Rovers to come):
