2014 D.S.V.C. Steam and vintage rally Crathes, Banchory

Post  lynnr on Sun 17 Aug 2014, 1:38 pm

Hi all

Crystal been out again and was gracious to take me along as well.



Live cargo. Atomentor's relation I think





Others

















And finally a night time shot. Well almost. Generating before heading to the beer tent.



Once I got to the bear tent. Belted up and ran for 10 minutes. Then a odd sound. Quick shutdown. Humm. The shaft in the dynamo has snapped!

Sunday ready to enter the ring.



I hope some one sends me pictures as Crystal managed a full pull at the tractor pulling event.

Oh.  

Friday evenings activity. Little bit of driving a steam locomotive.

Excellent pictures Lynn, looks like you had a lot of fun. Nice range of miniature engines there this year, I'm sorry I missed it... (working on big job at the village hall here!!)

Sad news re the generator shaft, is that the modified shaft from STW?

Regards,
Tony

Tractor Pulling!!

Post  atomenter on Sat 30 Aug 2014, 4:45 am

Managed to find a picture of the Foden in the miniature tractor pulling event.  The sled has a 600kg weight that is moved forward by the driver on the back increasing the load dramatically the further you progress.  I managed about 50 yards or so whereas Lynn with her showman's managed a "Full Pull" (no pictures unfortunately).

Regards
Tom

Mini tractor pulling

Post  atomenter on Sat 30 Aug 2014, 10:39 am

Hi John
It was great fun and something different for the spectators.  I could have done with more steam, I was down to about 90psi when I started the pull.  It is alright for the tractor boys - full throttle and away they go!!
