The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

Did you see Michelle Louise?

Whilst this member of the Webteam cannot claim to be an expert on this or any other engine, a reader has sent in these fantastic images that were taken on Church Bank earlier this week.

I believe this to be the Wallis & Steevens General Purpose Engine, 2394 "Michelle Louise" — Built in 1897.

Feel free to correct me if my research has let me down!

In any event, this veritable beast, in perfect working order and with a real character at the controls, was just out for a jaunt from Tarporley.

Thirsty work indeed and spotted on Church Bank, where 'Tattenhallers' duly obliged!!

Thanks to our reader for sending in these sensational images.
