Rain washes out a promising Luton Festival of Transport





A lineup of Vanguards under threatening Luton skies



Lynda and I returned to the Luton Festival of Transport at Stockwood Park in Luton this year, our first visit for a number of years. We hope that it would brighten up soon. It didn't! Mind you, we were not the only people looking for a sunny day out. Arriving in the Flying 12 DHC. we soon bumped into a line of Vanguards representing the John Huckle collection, Roy Gillman in another Vanguard, John and Rachael Maxwell in their Triumoh and a couple from Luton in their Standard 10. However we were all disappointed because it started to rain almost as soon as we got there and continued to do so all day.


So the activities were certainly curtailed, but that didn't prevent me from grabbing a few photos of the fine Standards that were there: You can click on any of the photos to see an enlargement.

A true statement


 By 2.00pm, enough was enough so we abandoned the event for the dryer environment of the pub!
