We report on the welcomed return of the Saunders collection’s Christmas Road Run, and the wonderful steam-powered vehicles that took part.
After an enforced break in 2020, the Saunders collection’s Christmas Road Run returned in 2021, with a fine selection of the Saunders fleet heading out onto the road on the Wednesday between Christmas and New Year.
The circular route from Stotfold took the engines through the Herts/Beds villages of Arlesey and Letchworth, and finished at sunset at the Coach and Horses pub in Stotfold.
Making its first appearance on the run was Fowler B6 Super Lion no. 19782 The Lion of 1932, and a fine sight it made sitting outside the pub as the sun went down. This year’s route included the long climb up Arlesey New Road, which produced some superb sound effects from the participating engines.
