The International Steam Pages

The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2019
The Working Areas

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.

With good weather throughout and fewer engines to record, I had a little time to look at the working areas. Reviewing the photographic results, my immediate thought is 'Must try harder next time!'. I would have spent half our 4th day doing just this, but Yuehong rightly felt that the time would be better spent getting home, refreshing the garden and getting some rest ahead of our visit to Shrewsbury. Please view the pictures as a 'missed opportunity'.

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