I grew up in Beckenham, Kent in the early '50s and remember well the older brothers of a friend of mine who had or was converting a Jowett engine in a chassis to steam around about 1953 or '54.
I never saw it go but recall it looking very interesting. I was however only 9 or 10 years old and the nearest I got to real steam was with Mamod engines! The family name of the brothers was Gregory and they lived in Albermarle Road.
Hope this may be of interest.
