Welland Steam Rally - the watering station
Welland Steam Rally - the watering station
The portable bowser for supplying traction engines with water is filled here using a fine Worthington Simpson horizontal duplex non-rotative steam pump. The pump draws from a stream coming off the Malvern Hills. Steam is supplied by Aveling & Porter 5NHP steam roller - Britannia. No. 8548 of 1915 and now owned by H Collings of Abergavenny. Mr Collings also owns the pump. This is another unusual site on a rally field and is in the realm of my major interest - stationary steam.
