Pics of this gathering plus pictures of Nunney castle situated a few hundred yards from the crank up site.Weather was kind but low sun made long shadows and caused some problem taking decent shots.I think I managed to take a shot of all engines present. Enjoy on ------
I love these crank ups & always exhibit when I can. The last one happened when I was in the States & this one when I was on my way back from our Winter Banquet in Kent. I did drop in, but the brilliantly clear & pleasant weather I'd had travelling west was left behind when I turned south on the A350 & by the time I got to Nunnery Catch, it was drizzling & cold.
They'd all packed up by this time (1.45 ) & the raffle was in progress, so I only stayed a few minutes. I'll be at the Mince Pie crank up, deo volante!
BTW, it was a clear, cold night at the Longhall last night & the Milky Way, various nebulae and all the winter constellations were to be seen in their stunning glory. Worth going just to see it, especially as a shooting star made an appearance right on cue.
