Cornishman comes steaming home 2015

Cornishman comes steaming home 2015

Two steam traction engines, Cornishman and Cornish Maid, which worked together in and around St Columb Major from 1919 to the late 1940s have been reunited after 70 years.

Burrell 2909 Cornishman, a single crank compound steam road locomotive, was built in 1907 and delivered new to Charles Parsons of Bridge, St Columb Major. Just over a decade, and a World War, later a second Burrell, 3816 Cornish Maid a double crank compound, was build as a special order with an extra long boiler and joined the Parsons' fleet. Both engines' working lives included threshing, wood sawing, and haulage of some of Anderton & Rowlands fairground equipment in the summer months.

Cornishman was sold in the late 1940s, and came into the ownership of Robert Hobbs of Kent in 2006 since when an extensive restoration has been carried out. The visit for the Boconnoc Steam Fair and to her home territory at St Columb Major was the engine's first return to Cornwall for 70 years. When Cornish Maid came to the end of her working life the preservation movement was just taking off and she appeared at Rallies in Cornwall. The late Mark Syms worked the engine with Charles Parsons' sons Horace & Baden, and she is now owned and maintained to a high standard by the Syms family of St Columb Major.

After half an hour hurling in the town the countrymen made a break for the parish boundary which, although it was briefly foiled by townsman Marco Ciarleglio looking for his fifth successive win, eventually saw Sean Johns carry the ball over the boundary at Trembleath. Sean recorded his tenth personal victory, his first for the country, who have broken a run of 19 straight wins for the townsmen.
