On Friday while driving to work there were steam engine vehicles driving down the A4 towards hungerford, now today I popped out for lunch and there's two of the steam engine vehicles driving down the A4 again but towards Thatcham.

Anyone know what these are for?

Ah crap, knew I'd make a typo... typical it's in the post title!

I meant engine... not engineer (I always automatically type engineer!)

Been to the end of season gala at Crofton Pumping Station, the other side of Gt Bedwyn. Incidentally, this must be one of the few villages remaining where there are absolutely no parking restrictions - or none that I've ever seen.

Had another look again today, Bill - none to be seen and the natives say they've have ever seen any, presumably Wilts CC cannot spare any yellow paint for such a remote location.
