Bayley Wheeled Escape

2016 Emergency Services Day, Newark. I saw this Ausin Loadstar and being involved with the restoration of horse drawn carriages it was taken aback by the sheer size of these escape wheels. They would cost a huge sum to be made today and thats only if a wheelwright could be found with the knowledge to make a pair. Bayley also made London Trolleys for the greengrocery trade and these were bulky and cumbersome just like their escape wheels. That said, i would have this in my collection if space allowed. What a fabulous beast.
