Ransomes Traction Engine Restoration
The restoration of Richard Hemington's 7 h.p. Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies Traction Engine No.26995 "Mendip Lady". Purchased in 1996 with a new inner firebox already fitted, the remains were dragged out of paperclip factory in Clacton on Sea and taken to Little Tey in Essex for reconstruction. Work shown includes cutting the firehole in the new inner, fitting and riveting a new smokebox and the renewal of wasted rivets and stays with the assistance of the late Kim Malyon. After fitting the front wheels, it is lit up for the first time and the valve timing set, darkness falling before it moves under it's own steam.
