Default Saffron Walden Crank-up Rally 11-12 May 2019

Yesterday was my first rally for the season, not large but well worth the visit, good to get the smell of hot oil and coal smoke again. This was SAFFRON WALDEN CRANK-UP RALLY. enjoy my photo's.

A glorious day there today,. A very tight site, so no movement other than the miniatures.

I've be going to steam events man and boy since 1967, and have photographed over 1500 engines, yet I still saw one I'd never seen before (Burrell 2770) at this event. Excellent!

It was sold by Preston Services. They listed it as
"A rear sprung general purpose engine supplied new 1905, this Burrell has never been rallied and just been completely rebuilt to a very high standard throughout."
so that's probably why.
