Henham Steam Fair

A nice day on Sunday for a trip out in the MGF to Henham Steam Fair, plenty of sun and no wind. Have the TR7 electrics all disconnected for some welding, but no gas!

Henham was really packed, took me a while to get in with long queue's for the car park, should have turned up earlier.

Plenty to see and do again this year, the show seems to get bigger every year, I had a good old wander round, firstly looking at the boys toys, some good model makers out there.

I also watched the model aircraft flying which was quite good, at one point 2 scale model Lancaster bombers where flying and some seriously quick jet propelled model planes.

Next was the steam area, a large selection of steam rollers, showman's engine and road engines, some of the showman's engines where powering the traditional style fair, whilst other's where connected up to Threshers, circular saws, etc.
Burrel Showman's Engine.

Fowler ploughing engine.

Ransome road tractor.

Steam powered Galloper.
Next up was the commercials and military section, plenty of old commercials on show, I quite liked the Pickfords selection.

I also spotted a Marshalls built 101 Forward Control Landrover, I distinctly remember building these command vehicles quite a few years ago.

Next up was the 2 areas for classic and vintage cars, plenty on view this year.
BMW bubble car.

Coach built Healey.
Next was a quick look round the tractors, must have been a hundred at least.
Fordson tractor.
After this there was still the auto jumble, all the craft stall's, all the dealers with new cars on display and the food tents to visit before a nice drive home in the sun. That's probably it for shows this year, got a fair bit of work to do with the TR7 to keep me busy and we have a couple of runs planned.
