AEC Fairground Generator
Whiteleggs Fair
Scale 1/77
I used to stand and listen to this one like this when the fair came to Honicknowle Green. I can still hear the engine roar and that smell of hot engine and electrical heat. I have modeled it from an old B/W photo my Sister took; the colours are how I remember them.
Scratch built from bits leftover from conversions. Base toys cab. B&W models generator

Whiteleggs, in their heyday never had any AEC's Leyland and Atkinson later & the 4wheel generator unit was Atkinson and the tractor unit (Trabant ride) a Leyland
