Worcester Victorian Market - gallopers
Genuine Victorian steam gallopers built in 1890 for Belfast showman William Toft & Sons. The centre engine is by Savage of King's Lynn but its provenance has not been traced. The ride is now owned by Lawrence Bishton and debuted in England at Ollerton in 1990. The ride is fired on bottled gas rather than coal and as a result is very clean in terms of exhaust.
