After a week of rain, gales, and horrible weather, we woke to a lovely sunny morning on Sunday the 3rd of November 2002, although it doesn't seem five minutes ago since the last one, we set off for yet another London to Brighton run, here are a number of pictures of the steamers running this year......

|Mike Mutters setting off in his 1896 Whitney on the next leg of the run....|
| The Whitney burner has a habit of letting the fire out of it's casing!!!!
|This was a very smart 1899 Locomobile......|
| Mr Dales 1900 Serpollet at speed...
|Although Richard Hounslow's Locomobile was leaking water out of the burner, it still got underway again!!|
|You may remember the pictures that Peter Turvey sent you of a 1903 Stanley CX being pull from long time storage. Well here it is after full restoration, at speed climbing a long hill...|
|A make not seen very often is this Milwaukee, going strong here but it did have boiler problems later on...|
|Here goes Simon Webb in his CX on the next leg after a water stop at The Steam Car Club pull in...|
|And lastly, it's not often you see this sort of traffic jam!!|

I thought you would be interested in the pictures I took of this years London to Brighton as we were assisting MikeMutters with his 1896 Whitney, you will be pleased to hear that the car made it to Brighton yet again although we did have some problems on the way, it's amazing how with bit's of wire and nuts that are the wrong thread, that hang on well enough to hold a vital part in place, part of a discarded coke can and a lot of ingenuity can get you there, hope you enjoy the pictures,
all the best, Jeff.
Above are some of the pictures from yesterday...
