Old Time Steam Fair Engine

Taken 14/7/2013 at the Powderham Classics Show.

16/6/2012. Bournemouth - Dorset - UK
Bournemouth and Poole Steam and Vehicle Show.

Built in 1976 as a Special Steam Tractor in Lanark, Scotland, by the Borthwick Family. It has a Bryan Donkin vertical boilered engine, Foden 5 ton front axle and wheels a Foden Pump along with many old steam parts and other bits and pieces. Hence the name - Bitza.
Bought by Robin and Rachel Neave in a poor state in 2009 it is still a work in progress they do a little bit more to her each winter.
