I like to think I have a good life, I get to play with some good toys, and make some interesting things. Today however was definitely a red letter day.
It was a wheelwrights day out and a few of us went see and try this 1904 Shand Mason horse drawn steam powered fire engine. It is a truly stunning vehicle and as you can see from the second photo the water jet it emits was so powerful it took two men to hold it, and they were struggling. This is only normally steamed on very special occasions so I feel quite honoured.
