Carry On at the 2009 St.Albans Steam and Vintage Show

Fowler no. 14425 (Currently registered as DP 4418) is a Showman's Road Locomotive built by Fowler & Co. of Leeds in May 1916. This engine was originally built as a heavy haulage engine to tow Howitzer guns in France for the War Department. It was converted to a Showman's engine in 1923 by Charles Openshaw of Reading and was sold to Condonas of Glasgow, Scotland. In 1943 it was sold to McGiverns of Northern Ireland and was last used in 1959 St Patrick's Day celebrations in Dublin before being shipped back to England by Jack Stantham.

Restored by Lance Stantham, the engine is capable of generating 300 amps at 100 volts.

The engine currently named Carry On is now owned by the Saunders collection in Bedfordshire. The engine visits many Steam fairs with there collection of Old time Fairground Rides which it provides power for.
