Dick Ransome, Arthur's cousin. When I met him 20 years ago he was the engineer on the Gondola, a big man in a white boiler suit. He lived in Torver and was a steam tractor enthusiast.

Not surprising really. The Ransomes family is linked to the firm, Ransomes, Sims and Jeffries of Ipswich who built large numbers of steam engines - including steam tractors.
