Weekend Steam: Truckin' In The U.K.

You have to love steam lorries.  Don't you wish we had some of these on this side of the pond?!  Many thanks to Merle for spotting and screening!

What a Friday night's entertainment! I loved all the vehicles. The trucks with their loads of people and/or cartage. The bus: what a jewel. And the sound of the engine! The Stanley "coffin nose" and the cars, I believe they were Bantams. I would truly love to see those sights in person, but realistically, my traveling days are over. Back in the 1980s if I remember correctly, there was a Foden steam lorry in Tulsa. A gentlemen, James Leake, one of the starters of the big collector car auction business, had gone to England and returned with the truck. A delightful sight amongst the steam traction engines, threshers, and large gas tractors of the Oklahoma prairie.
