Yes they're coal fired by hand. As far as I know the boiler tubes are vertical meaning whom ever is cleaning them has to lay underneath  getting covered in soot.

Sentinels I remember had a rounded front to the cab with chimney sticking through the roof, presumably from a boiler where the engine of a diesel lorry would be. You mention a banner stating 'still delivering without oil'. So were they coal fired? By hand?

        I know I shall get some stick for this but I have got to ask. Back in the dim dark days of the late 1950's when my Dad was young and BC (Before Children) he owned a few steam Engines of the road going sort. Thanks to Bryn Clinch I have finally seen a pic of the first Sentinel Waggon he owned, I still have the works plate so in a way she still lives. I have a pic of his last vehicle, a Sentinel S4, he obtained this from the Pegden Brothers by swopping his Showmans Engine, Vanguard now at Preston, for this beast.[/img] I know that she was originaly owned by Wingham Engineering and hired out to whoever needed a vehicle. They owned many steam vehicles, there are one or two about still, but I need to know if any of our members remember this waggon that was hired by Fremlins in Faversham. She was last worked by them during the Suez Crisis, I believed that it was Sheps that had her but I was mistaken, I understand that they had a banner across the front dash panel stating that even without oil they were still delivering. I believe that this pic was shot at Acrise during one of the first Steam Rallys in the country. She was brown with white lining and a red chassis and wheels with a silver engine. Regards, Sentinel S4.
