    The Deisel Engine in narrowboats

    "Petter made the S model, and one is (or was) exhibited at the Waterways museum in Gloucester: https://www.gracesguide.co.uk/File:Im20111218Glos-i151.jpg" Post 3 If this is the engine out of "Oak" that was at the museum it was given by Dad and was from Charlie Ballinger's boat "Olive" He was good at giving away engines he also gave a 9hp Bolinder to the Boat museum, I remember it on two railway sleepers dancing up and down the drive when he ran it

    Ribbon - Lace Plates

    The market for these isn't there, no one was interested when we tried to sell Dad's 50 plates a couple of years ago. they ended up at auction and fetched about £20, you just have to wait for times to change again
