SRS Blog > 8 ton Aveling roller

Published 14th February 2004

With the house move coming up, I decided to have a bit of a rationalise of some of the projects (particularly big heavy ones!). I have a 1925 steam roller which has been in bits for too long, awaiting heavy boiler repairs.
As the boys grow apace, it was starting to look like I'd get it all back together just as they were leaving home. After much deliberation, the Clayton & Shuttleworth is moving on to a new home and the Aveling boiler is going off to the boilermaker next week. With a little luck, by the time it comes back, I will have got most of the motionwork finished.
