My first time at Steam in the park and it was brilliant. Free entry to the public and the place was busy all day.

There were a hand full of full size steamers, hoards of miniature engines, 20 or so stationary engines, 60+ classic cars and a fine array of bikes.

Neil was showing his Stuart Turner, like clockwork as usual

Dan was showing the latest Ruston, even on a big trailer, behind a big car; it still looked a substantial engine!

Kevin's Petter, my Lister and Dean's Amanco - we did our best to keep the electrical bits dry today.

I put some brighter lamps in the light box to load up the Lister a bit more, very happy with a bit more load.

Unusual trailer behind an old CX, 6 wheel conversion..

Some very fine bikes on show, my favorite:

First time towing an engine, they have always gone in the back of the Rover. No problems at all and I found it so much easier loading and securing the engine.

A really great day out, not bad for a free event.

Phill.

That Piper twin is a brilliant trailer, the faster it goes the lighter it gets.

Thanks for the pics Phill, considering the weather, and it being a Saturday I was impressed with the amount of visitors. Definitely attending again next year, just a really nice rally in lovely surroundings, who knew a park like that was within a stones throw of the crossing.
