Stroof Urban District Council Steam Roller
« Reply #1 on: March 24, 2011, 21:42:32 »
I thought that those interested in Strood may be interested to see this photograph.  It is of an Aveling & Porter named roller,  "Queen" and owned by Strood Urban District Council.  Its a typical scence, a runaway, not uncommon. 

For the techies, its a piston valve engine. No. 10658 (effectively the serial number, most steam engines go by serial number, not registration number); from circa 1923. 

I have taken this from the 1966 edition of Steaming Magzine!
