STEAM SOCIETY 40th ANNIVERSARY ROAD RUN
on from the article in the 20th
July edition of Wyenot
News, I thought visitors to this site might like to see slightly
larger copies of two of the photographs I took of the Ross-on-Wye
Steam Society's 40th Anniversary Road Run, which took place on Sunday
18th July 2004. Pictured below are David Pout and his son in Gloucester
Road, driving their Burrell 7 horse power showman's engine, 'Nancy.'
Also pictured is Colin
Dix with his sons negotiating the Five Ways mini-roundabout in their
McLaren Road Locomotive, 'Hogwart'. It was well worth the long wait
for the engines to get up steam before beginning the run along Gloucester
Road, High Street, Edde Cross Street, New Street, Broad Street,
Brookend Street, Millpond Street, Cantilupe Road and finally back
to the grounds of the Chase Hotel, where the engines were left on
display for the afternoon.
