The Burrell No. 3938 was built in 1922 for William Wilson of Peckham in South London, to generate power for his steam driven Rodeo Switchback ride. She was sold in the mid 1930s to another showman/amusement contractor Wall's of Petersfield in Hampshire. After a long working career, 'Quo Vadis' was eventually sold for scrap in 1948 but fortunately, she was saved in 1959 by Mr E C Hine of Shaftesbury in Dorset. Although she was by that time in a very sad state of repair, 'Quo Vadis' was retrieved and restored to her former glory. Since then, she has changed hands several times.
'Quo Vadis' has been the flagship steam vehicle for the Great Dorset Steam Fair from the very beginning, with the late founder Michael Oliver taking her all over the country in the early years to promote this key event in the vintage steam vehicle calendar, attended by steam enthusiasts from all over the world.
