A BIG ask!!!!

Post  Steam Traction World on Mon 28 Jul 2014, 8:38 am

Hi All,

Due to a problem with one of our lorries we decided to reduce the stand sizes for all the shows apart from GDSF this year.

However, after having a stand at the Welland show this weekend both Steve and I felt a reduced stand size with limited engines certainly did us NO justice whatsoever.

We have therefore decided to go back to a larger stand (even if we need to hire another lorry to get the products their).....The only issue we have with this is that currently we do not have a Road Loco or Showman's to display (they are away being brilliantly assembled and painted by Steve Traill)...........

So on to THE BIG ASK...........

Does any how have a Road Loco or Showmans (or both) that they would be willing to lend us or even better bring to Astle Park or even the Lincoln Rally as a display for the stand???? The show dates for Astle Park, Cheshire is 9th & 10th August and for Lincoln is the following week, 16th & 17th August.........You don't have to be able to do both, either one will be fine as some one else may be able to do the other.......The engine would need to spend the day on the stand but could possibly be in steam if you wanted and if you wanted to you could then have a 'play' in the evening.........We would obviously cover any costs incurred (unless you are one of our New Zealand customers!!!), plus keep you in food, drink etc etc......all of the above is negotiable within reason as i really think we miss out by not having them there.

Should you be in the position to help and wish to do so then please feel free to give me a call to discuss.

Would love to help but think Crystal is a bit far away for those events.
