The International Steam Pages

The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2019
Showman's Engines

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 GDSF2019 main index and click here for the 2019 introduction and overall index.

The Showman's engine line up at the GDSF is second to none and this year it returned to its normal size with just over 50 on show, with most on a traditional single line. We had a very long day on Friday and I experimented with some evening shots, some are included here and others in a separate section.

Choose the page you are interested in and within that, click on a thumbnail for a larger image. Then click again to return to the page.

David Collidge's Steam Scenes website ( is a fount of information and was a great help in compiling these pages.

Foster showman's engines as far as the eye can see. The Helpmate on the right was my only new showman's engine in the whole show.
