When we started this event, 3 years ago, we called it ‘Steam at Work’ because our rally is different. It is not in a field, engines are spread around the Museum grounds, and this is not a ‘park and polish’ rally with rows of gleaming engines, at our rally, engines moving, and working is the theme. Whilst not the biggest rally, our event certainly captures the sights, sounds and smells of the age of steam. Visitors can immerse themselves in this bygone world, and each day concludes with a mass parade of engines through the museum.
With 20+ full size tractions engines, steam rollers, steam lorries and road locomotives in attendance alongside an array of miniature engines and stationary engines this is an event ‘in motion’ and really is not to be missed.
