Great Dorset Steam Fair, part 3.
Here now are a few more pictures from this fabulous event.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it.
These Steam engines were just having their Fires lit early one morning.
This was quite a small (below) one as the size of Sue alongside shows.
As i have already mentioned we attended the show the day before the show actually started and a lot of these pictures are from then.
As you can see by the crowds in the back ground this picture was taken on a "Show Day". This lovely little fully working and very capable Scaled down edition was driven around by a youngster of about 10. There were about 15 -16 of these in one section, they were all in absolutely gorgeous condition.
Just one of the dozens of these lovely engines.
This one is owned by Anderton & Rowland, this family still run a large modern fair all around the West Country.
Sue dwarfed by these giant engines.
This engine was being attended by all the family, husband, wife and son were all busy cleaning and preening.
Again a row of engines before they got "Fired" up.
This one was just so clean (even when running) you could have eaten your lunch off it.
These next three pictures are of a "Stanley" steam powered car. This car is Taxed and fully road worthy and used regularly.
I think this was my favourite Steam exhibit.
There were around a dozed fully working Steam cars here, all in beautiful condition.
So just one more boring post still to come on this fabulous fair until next year. Meanwhile i have added two short "You Tube" films to give you an idea of the nightime atmosphere here.
Joke of the day.
Subject: BUSINESS REPA BUSINESS REP A man, checks into an hotel on a business trip and was a bit lonely.
He thought, "I'll call one of those girls you see advertised in phone booths when you're calling for a cab."
He popped into a phone booth near the hotel and found an ad for a girl calling herself Erogonique, a lovely girl, bending over in the photo. He copied the phone number and returned to his hotel. When back in the room he figures, what the heck, give her a call.
"Hello," the woman says. God, she sounded sexy.
"Hi, I hear you give a great massage and I'd like you to come to my room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is s#x. I want it hard, I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys,rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night; tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything you want! Now, how does that sound?"
She says, "That sounds fantastic,
but you need to press 9 for an outside line."
