Are you looking for a bit of a project to see you through the rest of this quiet season? Just in, we have a 3” scale Marshall 7NHP General Purpose Traction Engine which is in the final stages of build and is to be sold as a project. It is a pre-2002 boiler and has been a long build so far. In its current condition, it gives the new owner the opportunity to do a little bit of final machining (mainly for the mechanical water pump ) and finalise it to their specification. It has been steamed a handful of times already so is not far from completion in capable hands. This can be supplied with a new hydraulic certificate if requested. Asking price - £6,995 For further details, give us a call on 01392 833301 or email steam @berrybrook .co.uk.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 23rd March, Berrybrook Steam & Classics is now closed for the foreseeable future. We are now running the sales and advertising from home with access to the emails and website. We sadly do not have access to our usual phone lines. Our workshops are closed until further notice. I would still be more than happy to give anyone a call privately to discuss any vehicle if they let me know by email. The email addresses I have access to are steam @berrybrook .co.uk and classics @berrybrook .co.uk. The other half of our company, Berrybrook Morgan, have shut the showrooms but are running on skeleton workshop staff to continue offering essential car repairs and MOTs to the local community. As many of you know, we share our phones with Berrybrook Morgan and, if you ring our normal number, the workshop staff will only be able to take a message and send it to me to ring you back. During this time, we have postponed all viewings, visits and handovers until further notice; our showrooms and workshops will be remaining locked. The only option we can offer is to suggest that, if a vehicle is of interest, we can hold it with a deposit. I will continue to update our social media and website to see everyone through this difficult time with some pictures of steam and classic vehicles! We would like to thank all our customers and friends for their support and wish everyone good health over the next few weeks.
What does Santa do during the summer? Hire a Morgan of course! Berrybrook Morgan and Berrybrook Steam & Classics have got together for the Christmas Shopping Fayre 2019 - starting tomorrow (Friday 29th November ) and finishing on Sunday (1st December ) at the Westpoint Arena near Exeter. We will be selling vouchers for our Morgan Hire and Steam Traction Engine Courses, as well as stocking lots of trinkets from our Morgan shop. Make sure you come and say hello to us on our stand or to find out more on anything pictured, call the office on 01392 833301!
And so ends another year of the Great Dorset Steam Fair! A big thank you to Martin Oliver and the team for putting on another great show and for inviting us to bring both our trade stand and our 7NHP Marshall ‘Maverick’. Also a big shout out to everyone who helped us out this year - it was without doubt our best year ever and couldn’t have been done without you. Finally, a thank you goes to everyone who took the time during the week to come for a chat, say hello, see what we had for sale and join us for our drinks on Friday - without you all, we certainly wouldn’t be there! We wish everyone a safe trip home to their shower to clean off that famed Dorset dust...

We are delighted to announce that today we handed over ‘The General’ to the new owner, Mike Robinson. Mike and Adrian Nutting, of A. N. Engineering, have been to visit us a couple of times during the recent work on the engine and are over the moon with how she turned out. The plan is to use the half size Burrell Scenic Showmans’ Road Locomotive, based on ‘General Gough’, around her new home in the Nottingham area. We wish Mike all the best with ‘The General’ and hope he gets as much fun out of roading and rallying her, as we have done for the last 10 years! (Pictured from left to right: Matt Anthony, Sean Anthony, Mike Robinson and Adrian Nutting outside our showroom in front of 'The General' )
Excellent #steamitsunday run yesterday on our own engine ‘Maverick’!
