Default Tees Cottage Pumping Museum Oct 2017

Gents,

Pictures from This Years Autumn Gala at Tees Cottage.

An Excellent day! Lovely weather, and the most successful Gala TCPM has had thus far, with 550 people through the gates in addition to those exhibiting.

The museum has never looked better thanks to the efforts of the volunteers and sponsorship/support of local companies (including my former employer Cummins).

The engine lineup was small, and I gather a number of booked exhibitors no-showed, their loss frankly, as the atmosphere was fantastic, combined with the beautiful surroundings, improved further by all of the changing colours in the trees, typical of this time of year at the museum.

The Electric powered pumps, I believe the museum intend to make something of this display too, as these are quite old (and vintage in their own right)

I never managed to make it to Tees Cottage Paul, might make it next year but it usually clashes with things around here. Ray Tinkler from near Appleby used to take an engine but I believe that he isn't too well these days, he used to rally a Ruston PB6 but sometimes took his model farm that he exhibited at the Croft (Hurworth) rally. Good pics, and the little lad is getting larger!

Pete.

Thanks Peter, it'll be good to see you again

I must admit, I normally plug this rally a lot more and a lot sooner than I have this year, but (for obvious reasons) this year has been about other priorities. Next year, without having to chew on with putting the rally at Locomotion together, I am hoping to give better support to the Pumping Museum, as well as some of my other favorite local rallies.

(My New years resolution is coming together I think..............)

Paul.

Great photos there Paul, thanks for sharing.
Once we are settled in our new home, I hope we can visit some of the more 'local' events.....
Where we live currently, its such pita to get anywhere without having to drive for hours.....

Paul, thanks for great photos, one of these days I will smile for camera, the CV as far as engine model/number, there is a bit of a not sure scenario at the moment, a forum member gave me some details, engine specs. and other info. there is a possibility at some time in its past life it might of had cylinders and heads fitted from another model size the engine spec. plate shows MW2 but the numbers on cyl. heads relate to a MW1, so it might be a marriage of parts from both engine models.

Am in process of dismantling it today to tidy it up a tad and have found this on crankcase sump " Coventry Victor Marine Engine MA 103 " this is not a spec. plate it is raised lettering/numbers in the casting.

So the plot thickens as to what it is, still winter is coming so plenty of time to do things, hopefully.

Hi Don,

Having done some more thinking on this, I think it might well be that Coventry Victor used a common head between the two sizes of engine. So rather than a marriage of parts it could well be legitimately an MW2.

Paul.
