My lister D

Who said there isn't enough young people enjoying stationary engines. My second daughter is only 14 months old and she is exploring with them already.

Last rally I was at I had to laugh, the guy next to me had his son with him about 3 years old. On the sunday morning he had his Ruston PT and Lister D stood and the 3 yer old picked up the starting handle and half put it on the PT shaft and turned it a bit happy as if he'd started it went over to the D and went to put the starting handle on the shaft but it didn't fit, at this he threw the handle down and stormed off, it looked so funny my wife said typical man. Kids make you laugh with what they say and do, can't wait till my grandson's a bit older and I can teach him my bad ways Laughing Laughing Laughing
