The International Steam Pages

Fairford Steam Rally (22nd - 23rd August, 2015)

This is one of a series of pages I have uploaded to illustrate facets of the steam rallies we have attended in the UK. Click here for the 2015 introduction and overall index.

Fairford is a small rally set on a farm just east of Cirencester. The steam exhibits had not come far, or at least without exception they were familiar to us and there were fewer than in 2014. The non-steam exhibits were again present but not in overwhelming numbers. We had come to relax and hopefully crack the steam ploughing which had been excellent the previous year but suffered from cloud cover which offered intermittent sunny spells for stills. Suffice to say I had great fun and am looking forward to editing up the video record.
