Truck and tractor

Steam beer sounds good to me, more from last Sunday at Prestwood's Steam Fair.

I was surprised to see the smoke coming from the back one. A very nice element.
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, yes they are all working and driven around a roped off area. It's great to see their owners fussing over them with tins of polish.
I can just hear old Fred Dibnah's voice as he climbs aboard. Superb crisp shot.

NB Your gallery is excellent.
John Prior: Thanks Michael, I was a big fan of Fred, I thought he would last as long as his engines.

I know that truck. Well at least I have photos of the same truck from the steam fair near Aylesbury a couple of years ago.
Aren't they wonderful?
John Prior: Thanks Debb, Prestwood is near Great Missenden, not that far from Aylesbury either. Yes I think they are great, and I like the the painstaking attention their owners lavish on them also.
