Default Riccall Christmas Crank up

Following the huge success of last years Christmas crank up at Riccall (Near York), the East Yorks Group NVTEC Ltd are again hosting the event this year. The event will be held on Sunday 30th December, at West Newlands Farm, Selby Road, Riccall.

All are welcome. Last year we had about 40 engines, 20 tractors, several vintage trucks, cars, bikes etc, as well as a Wallis Advance Diesel roller, a Wallis Advance Steam Roller & a Wallis traction engine turn up.

Food & drinks will be served throughout the day in the barns & sheds and we will have a couple of space heaters going as well.

Following last years event we managed to donate 200 to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, 200 to Internal Fire Museum & 200 to the Anson Museum.

Hopefully this year we can raise even more to give to charity.

Pictures from last years event can be seen at https://photos.google.com/share/AF1Q...1mU21PVnBpR09n

Well what can we say about todays crank up other than WOW. 40+ stationary engines, 20+ tractors, 4 full size steam engines, plus a selection of mini steam, land rovers, motorbikes, vintage cars, trucks and a huge turnout of people.
We have just had a count up and via donations and raffle ticket sales we have raised over 1200.
Many thanks to all that came and supported us with exhibits and donations etc. It was a truly fantastic day.
Finally we need to say a huge thanks to all the helped out on the day, from the ladies serving the food in the shed, the chaps directing traffic etc and those with the collection buckets and those selling raffle tickets. You all did an amazing job.

Here's a selection of pics that I took.

Looks like you had a great turn out and it sounds like your charities will benefit too.

Certainly a good day out, and the weather behaved itself as well! Thank you to everyone involved. These 'winter crank-ups' do attract a lot of public, we were at one in a PH car park near Derby on Boxing Day and as usual the place was crammed out with public probably escaping from cr*p tv and avoiding yet another platefull of rubber turkey. It will still be 'laying in state' when they arrive back home though....

Seems to be a lot of as found engines running nicely, and lots of stuff to see.
Wish there was something similar around here over the festive period.

I particularly like the Gade Model C engine, not that many around.

I like the "Priestman", not seen one of those before.

You will not see one on a UK rally field, there are believed to be only 3off in the UK. One in the science Museum store at Wroughton, one in Hull Museum in a stairwell (this used to be in the foyer at Priestmans factory in Hull until Acrow the parent company went bankrupt) along with an original Salesman sample engine & one in private ownership. There are also some in the USA & Australia/New Zealand. Total is less than 10 off out a build of approx 1000off.
The model at Riccal was made in about 1997.

...and ran beautifully, at (unusually for a model) a nice steady pace.



This is the Hull Priestman. In case the scale isn't clear, the top of the flywheels are well above head height.
