Join C. H. Wendel, from Gas Engine Magazine, on this wonderful tour to England, where you'll see some great historical sights, visit some great engine collections, and enjoy a host of other attractions.

We'll fly from Chicago O'Hare to Heathrow (an option is also available from Philadelphia), and, while in England, we'll stay in a variety of interesting cities, including the ancient capital of Winchester, Bristol ('The Birthplace of America'), the Roman city of Chester, the ancient town of Kings Lynn. and finally London itself.

There'll be tours of Naval Museums in Portsmouth, engines at Stapehill, and a visit to the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu. Additionally, viewings will be arranged of private collections, and we'll see the World Heritage Site at Telford, home to the Ironbridge and birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

Highlights of the trip to England will be a visit to Tatton Park 1000 Engine Rally and a scenic tour through Wales to view the Mountain Railway system at Ffestiniog.

We'll also visit the Shuttleworth Collection and the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, before spending our last few days in London.
