Just a quick note to remind readers that the Coffee Pot blog on the main Beamish website is now being updated regularly and includes images of the new boiler under construction at Israel Newton’s works in Bradford.
No photos this time but a thought, a possible theme for a future event. I would like suggestions for an A to Z of manufacturers of all forms of transport that we might seek to put together, maybe for 2010’s Power from the Past event. I’d be glad to hear any suggestions and maybe I can update this list as we go – as a starter here are some to be going on with (and yes, I’ve picked the easy ones!!!):
A AJS/Aveling & Porter/Arstrong Whitworth
C Clydesdale (horse breed!)/Case
D De Dion Bouton/Dene
G Gateshead (NER works)
H Head Wrightson/Humber
O Orenstein & Koppell
R Ruston & Hornsby
W Wallis & Steevens
That is my outline idea, off the back of an envelope, I’ll look forward to hearing what others might suggest… Over to you!
