Yesterday I took a ride down to Southampton to collect a Lister J I had bought off EBay. I met a delightful gentleman who like me collects Listers. He has not been doing it for long, couple of years, but he has a very nice collection and not run of the mill engines either for instance he has another J, a K to restore and one which he kindly allowed me to photograph to show you lot. Its an H and a beautiful job he has made too. He does not show them but enjoys getting them back to running condition for himself.
I have put a couple of pictures of his engine at the beginning of my latest travels. The night before my trip I looked in old glory to see if there was somewhere close to my route that I could visit on my return home, I found Tilford Rural life Museum which if you have not been to you must visit. It was a stationary Engine Weekend and whilst it was down in exhibitors there was still a good selection to look at and the museum has plenty to see also. To save me boring you with my blurb I took over a hundred pictures covering almost everything. I forgot to add, the gentleman I met is a builder, he is not an engineer and has just bought himself a myford lathe and is now teaching himself to do that as well.
