Default International Steam at Large 2019

Like David Bosworth we journeyed north to Beamish, a long way but well worth the effort.

By Saturday, 4 extra road engines had appeared.

Default Trevithick Day 2019

We had a long weekend in Cornwall. The weather wasn't wonderful but the least bad day was the Saturday, fortunately.

Having got home this afternoon, the report has been thrown together in a bit of a rush...

Default Abbey Hill May 4th

We were in Yeovil on Saturday:

35 engines and only 6 were here 5 years ago...

Unfortunately it's a pretty congested show ground which restricts movement for the most part.

Enjoy.

We attended these rallies over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend. The reports can be accessed through my 2019 index page:

Default St. Albans Steam and Country Show 2019

We attended on Saturday, there were 30 full sized road steam engines present and it was generally warm and sunny.

What not to enjoy including the Ukulele band playing in the beer tent with a walk in bass player when someone (and maybe an engine or two) got stuck in an enormous jam on the M1.

(So it's not impossible that Sunday may have seen an extra engine or two as there were three 'no shows' in the excellent complementary programme.

Linked as usual from the 2019 index page:

Default Wiltshire and Stoke Row Rallies 2019

On Sunday we visited the Wiltshire Rally which was a bit of a disaster.

Consequently we also visited the Stoke Row Rally too.

Default Wiston 2019

We were here on the Saturday and the sun came out eventually as things were winding down around 16.30:

http://www.internationalsteam.co.uk/.../ukindex19.htm

It was much as before with mainly 'south coast' engines, plenty of movement and 44 engines compared to 34 when we visited 4 years ago. It was well worth what for us is a long journey.

If anyone attended the show and photographed Aveling Barford AC606 which I saw once under the clouds and couldn't find again, I would be grateful for the use of a photograph for the report. There's an email address at the bottom of the report pages.

AC606 was parked up behind the Scammells for a time, but difficult to get a shot of it. Another successful event, and one that grows a bit every year.

Thanks.

It's got a lot going for it with a brilliant setting and it's within easy reach of anyone living along the coastal strip.

Coming from where we live, it's bound to be an occasional pleasure.
