I suppose they went full circle really as the first Associated engines were Sherman Smiths but with a small brass tag fitted.

On the subject of "Sherman Smiths" here's my buddies "Shermy" at Newby Hall at the weekend.

By 'badge engineered' I mean engines made by other companies but marketed under the Amanco name. In the case of the one under discussion, it looks to be one of the marine engines bought in from the DuBrie Motor Co.

Thanks for the pics - a great selection of engines.

Talking of badge engineering, not seen a Bradford 'Victoria' before.

We had our after show committee meeting last night.

The main points to come out of the meeting were that on the whole feedback has been very good. Following a few complaints we are looking at hiring in extra toilets for next years show. We are also looking at getting a bit better system of checking passes as we suffered with a lot of people abusing the passes and trying to get in for free.
We are also looking at investing in more seating to go around the working areas & rings as it was thought that as the show has grown over the past few years, we need to give our visitors and exhibitors more places to sit and watch the goings on of the show.

Other news to come out of the meeting was that the attendance of the show over the weekend was in excess of 12500. This means that we had by far our busiest and most successful weekend.

Thanks to all that came to the show and made it what it was.
