Steam Extraviganza in the UK

Thought people might like to see some pictures of the recent Steam Extravaganza that was held near me..


By mid afternoon, the place was hazy with smoke and steam from the engines, the first time i have seen this in rl, and a good indication of how it may have been at times in the past.

    I am jealous. Wish I could attend something like that. Wonderful photos.

    A great collection of images, Tepic…thanks for sharing!

    Was that a steam calliope in there by the carousel picture? If so, did they fire it up? Have never heard a real one.

      Yes, one definitely steam, two others probably electric/pneumatic. Gadget was very interested in them, and discovered that the control card stacks (punched cards!) were generic, and can be used on most machines.
