2013 SPECIAL EVENTS
Sunday 19th May
Fire Engines and Military Vehicles
Something very exciting is happening at an event at the Museum on Sunday 19th May.
As well as the usual engines running in the Museum, we are holding a Fire Engine and Military Vehicle Day at which there will be exhibits of historic fire appliances, military vehicles and memorabilia.
We will obviously be steaming the historic City of Ely Shand Mason Fire Appliance, which will again be joined by the Bedford lorry (restored by Peter Swann) that used to pull the appliance for the City of Ely when horses were no longer used. What is exceptionally exciting is that the steam fire appliance will be joined by two more steaming Shand Mason appliances (of only 6 further in the UK) – the Thorney appliance (owned by Beds Fire Brigade) and the Sedgwicks Watford Brewery appliance (owned by Derek Wheeler). These very rarest of steam vehicles will all be pumping water from the drain and jetting back into the drain, creating quite a spectacle.
