It must be a man thing: maintaining vintage stationary engines

stationary-enginesHere’s another short video of the activities at the Malvern Autumn Show on 24-25th September. Again, it’s about a man thing, finding pleasure in bringing vintage stationary engines into working order.

I’m sure I spotted a mother and some children in among the engines, although they seemed to be bystanders on a family weekend away. For the men it was definitely a chance to catch up with fellow vintage stationary engine enthusiasts.

Yours truly found enjoyment in seeing the engines working, and appreciated the love lavished on them. An unexpected pleasurable contrast to the flower, vegetable and animal displays.
