Default GDSF 2018

My report has progressed to the point where it is fit for public perusal.

Some 500 engines are listed and illustrated, there are a few gaps in the photographic record. these are indicated and if you can help, then there's an email address at the bottom of each page.

My thanks to all those who have already provided pictures for those engines I missed or plain failed to take a photograph.

Just as the programme listing was imperfect in its details (and I don't just mean no shows and extra engines), so will be my report. Please let me know of any errors or omissions you have spotted.

Default Old Warden 2018

Perhaps not the novelty value of this year's GDSF but a thoroughly enjoyable show nevertheless, with plenty of warm sunshine on the Saturday and patches of it on the Friday.

I also got to 138 engines plus the pumps and freelance engines.

Default FFF&B Show 2018

The Fairford, Faringdon, Filkins and Burford Ploughing Championships and Country Show takes place on the last Saturday of September each year. This year's event at Clanfield attracted 15 steam engines plus a McLaren Fowler ploughing engine conversion, with a good working section.

The usual photoreport is now available:

Default Klondyke Mill Steam Party 13th - 14th October 2018

Almost as wet as the Steam Plough Club Great Challenge not far away but fewer intrepid bog snorkellers on show:

Sadly half the engines on show were sheeted over and some detective work was needed to identify a couple of htem.
