Stapleford Park Country Fair 1/7

Besides the miniature railway at Stapleford Park there was an extensive country fair so a few shots from that this week. To start this photo of two old Leyland fire engines, that on the left ex Lincolnshire and that on the right ex Derbyshire, both in very fine condition.

What handsome looking veterans they both are, Brian.
Oh those are wonderful! I'd like to have photographed them myself. Frank and I are looking forward to a war birds & vintage car show next weekend.

Wonderful old things
WOW. Old-timey fire engines! That would make a great show, Brian. I can just imagine.
Imaging having to start one of these with a starting handle Brian!

Shiny polish and well pictured.

So that truck on the right will come and aid the fire. They should rather put the fire out.
They've obviously been well preserved and restored.

These are some great looking vehicles, Brian. There is something about old cars like these, so full of character.

I can recall when starting handles where common even on cars. Is "Lincolnshire Fire Aid" correct? "Fire Brigade" I could understand but not "Fire Aid".
