Beamish - Roads And Rails 7/7

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 1

Maureen and Brian send happy 70th.birthday greetings to Frank today, may he, and Elizabeth, have a very happy celebratory day, whatever they do and wherever they go.

 

There are quite a few commercial trucks running about Beamish to give an air of days gone by, I think the one top right might be a replica of a Model 'T' Ford. The Tarmac lorry at the bottom is a steam lorry, you can see the chimney on the right hand side of the cab. I would love to see that working on a gala day.

Thank you for the good wishes, Brian, and Maureen. Some grand vehicles here, Brian, I'd like to see the steam wagon in action also.
Brian Walbey: Hope your'e having a good day Frank. I saw a similar steam wagon like this in the Isle of Man back in 1998, indeed it might even be the same one as that was also in Tarmac livery. That one was in action running through the streets of Laxey on the way to the local tearoom!
You've got Frank's mouth watering about going to this place now! Thank you, Brian!
Brian Walbey: If you ever come over to the U.K.for any period of time then it is a good day out, (preferably 2 days, the ticket covers that) and there are some other lovely places to visit in the area including Durham.

The Sentinel looks positively modern on comparison with the other two lorries. I don't recall seeing one with a double front axle before.

The model T could be genuine but the van on the left looks like a modern replica.
Brian Walbey: They have got quite a few of these trucks running about in model T style so it is difficult to work out which is a replica and which isn't.
