there is no stick in the picture, does that mean I have to press that triangle thing in the middle of the picture

God it was muddy up there on Sunday. Made quite good time up there from Charfield (~45mins) and had a good day.

Have to say, the most enjoyable thing was the RC excavator tent! That and the farm foods...

Liked the little SIF engine on the Leo pump, nice exhibit without being "entry ticket"

I know nothing about these, but this has to be my choice of the pics posted.

A petrol version of one of those Robinsons attends our local rallies Neil, it's a messy thing though and you can always see where it has been at the end of the rally!

Yes I saw a few more on youtube last night, all left a mess
Put me right off them, which considering the likely price of a good one is probably just as well. Lol

The majority of the Robinsons that you see are replicas, and I think this one may be (although I'm no expert). Even the replicas are very expensive.

The local one I see is genuine, the owner (Peter Keating) has had it for donkey's years. He fitted a Lister D piston in it so at least we know the bore size is 3 inches! D Type pistons seem very adaptable to different engines and easily obtained, a local chap has one in a Wolseley WD2 and a clubmate fitted one to his Ruston PT.

Pete,

There is somebody I haven't spoken to for a while, he is a nice old boy always see him at Internal Fire events, regardless of weather he lives in his Transit, he volunteers at the Midland Railway I think,
