If You mean the one carrying the "Rally" number "31" (actually picture 28!!) then Yes, it is a Massey Harris 3hp which belongs to a friend of mine.

For me; Onslow Park is an event not to be missed. I understand there were 81 full size steamers this year, plus a large number of miniatures. Its great strength is the working displays especially the working field where a great variety of tractors, and some horses and steamers, were carrying out reaping, binding, ploughing and harrowing. I have submitted a report on the stationary engine section which, will hopefully, appear in print in Stationary Engine magazine in due course.

I exhibited at Honiton from 1989 to 1994 and Onslow from 1994 to 2012. both were excellent rallies considering that Honiton is 180 miles from home and Onslow 160 miles. both shows had very good stationary engine sections with plenty of good quality exhibits. both on a par with Welland ( Upton on Severn) and Lincoln. and both much much better than the display at Dorset )Grandfers day excepted) . (I did exhibit at Dorset in 1989 in Frank Hodges day and on day 5 was asked if I wanted to exhibit the next year. I said no thanks and have never taken an engine back to Dorset since. its just not for me) I exhibited at Henham for many years (1992 to 2006) and this show has an excellent stationary engine section. Even though I am a member of the club and attend the monthly meetings just don't bother with Bedford (Shuttleworth) they just don't want anything other than steam and Stationary Engines are a dirty word. Hence me travelling 110 miles to Henham and not the 12 miles to Shuttleworth, And yes I have had my say at the Bedford AGM.

Thanks Phil,
County of Salop Steam Engine Society.
Ross on Wye steam engine society.
Lincolnshire steam engine preservation society
Banbury steam engine preservation society

If all these STEAM society's can put on a decent Stationary engine lineup then so could Bedford.

If I wanted to rally a stationary engine that weekend then I would go to Henham, its only the diesel costs that takes me to Shuttleworth with diferent exhibit.

Phil,

I moved to within four miles of the Beds steam rally, in all its locations, twenty nine years ago and I was given the tel no of the organiser, the same man today with his son, I rang him and he asked what I had and half way through telling him he put the phone down, I've never attended the rally and never will as I wont give my money over to such a pig ignorant man, my view. A good friend of mine has a very large open crank, Stuart knows him, which he used to take to the rally and because of the way he was treated he has not done it for years, he queried where they wanted the engine and got told if you don't like it go away. I would not be able to get the engine in my trailer. It should be called steam and stalls.

This man lived on the same road as me (about 1 mile away) would not speak to me for the first 25 years of my life as an exhibitor and I have rallied some large rare and exotic engines, as soon as I buy a miniature traction engine he is all over me. I remember the indecent well, our friend was asked to exhibit an engine weighing over 1 ton on a slope of at least a 1:8. Another regular exhibitor wrote to tell them he would be unable to attend due to a forth coming operation, he never received an entry form again. Yet another exhibitor and club member turned up at his house and filled in his form in the office to ensure he got in, and he rallies nice open crank engines.


If you want a good rally the same weekend go to Henham or Little Casterton.
