SX8960 : Paignton Regatta - gallopers

taken 7 years ago, near to Paignton, Torbay, Great Britain

Paignton Regatta - gallopers
Paignton Regatta - gallopers
Former steam gallopers with a duplex steam centre engine (claimed to be by Walkers of Tewkesbury) and a Savage steam organ engine still in situ. The central chimney also survives although it is now electrically driven. The sign writing proclaims it to be toured by Anderton & Rowlands - a famous name in fairground history but it is owned by Mick Goulding as far as I can establish.
