Meet Charlie, our rescue dog.  Charlie is a Spanish Galgo.

He has a lovely nature and loves to meet new people. 

He often 'supervises' Trish and I when we are working on our old engines. 

It appears he really wants to make sure we do the restoration properly. 

When a friend of ours first saw him, he commented that Trish, I and Charlie

were all grey haired and referred to us in good humor as 'The Old Crankers',

a term we have adopted.  We hope to one day start displaying our engines at events

where Charlie will be welcome and give you the opportunity to meet him

and him the opportunity to meet you. 

He enjoys running, swimming,  playing ball and being a part of our family. 

He also loves his tucker, children and old machinery enthusiasts.

Please enjoy browsing the engines on our page.

There are YouTube Videos on each engine
