Teesdale Tour

I was only able to attend the fire up dinner and the first day.

It was great and the first tour for my Lovely wife, Sarah.

Now we (she) are hooked and will be coming with a car for next year, hope its our 740.

I need to get someone else to run the start of my local show, which starts the day the tour ends, but I am working on that.

So Thanks Don for a great tour Don and Family.

P.S. Watch the web site for an end of the year, mini tour around Harrogate.

A huge thank you to Don and Lesley for a wonderful tour. This is the first time we have visited this area, and will definitely make a return trip for a more thorough exploration! The scenery is stunning, food was excellent wherever we ate and hospitality outstanding. Also, according to our photographs we had a lot of sunshine! Can't wait to see Beamish again ...

Very best wishes, John and Marilyn Oliver.

WOW! What a fantastic tour, with an excellent set of tour notes taking us to some great places. Beamish was a special place and we would love to go back again to drive round it with our cars.

We would like to thank Don, Lesley and Andrew for all their hard work in making the week such a success.

Whilst this was only our second tour since owning a steam car, Jonathan, Cameron and myself were made very welcome and it was a pleasure to be with good company. The tour was certainly a test on man and machine through some wonderful countryside. Thanks you Don, Lesley and Andrew for a well planned tour. Beamish was tremendous

A big thank you to Lesley, Don and Andrew for organising such a brilliant tour. Great routes ending up at great places. We especially enjoyed Beamish and Raby Castle.

A lovely part of the country - we cannot wait to go back!

Also, special thanks to Basil for letting us drive his wonderful 'Model 70' for the week.

Lesley, Andrew and I would like to thank every one for their kind words in the emails, cards and posts on this forum; itís very rewarding when everyone enjoys themselves.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour ourselves, and we enjoyed putting it all together too. It was great to have everyone here.
