Default Welland Steam Rally 2013

For those looking for something new, recently returned from Spain, steam road roller Fowler 9061/1901, in very original condition, is on static display alongside the Prout Garage display. A big beast to say the least.

The information was given to me by a well respected writer of magazine articles, who found, and photographed, something
which identified the engine, on the footplate.

Default Fowler at Welland

I spoke to the owner today he said that he purchased it from Italy where it had been stored inside for over 70 years and it was 20 tons.
