The International Steam Pages


Welland Steam Rally (24th - 26th July, 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.


This was our third Welland Rally and as before, it was a really special show. Sadly both Friday and Sunday were effectively lost to rain and few visitors would have attended. Fortunately Saturday was dry and fine and the ground by and large dried out so that a full programme of events was possible. Two days are really needed for effective coverage and inevitably something had to give which was primarily the video because I had some good material from 2014. However, trying to get 'everything' for this report was challenging, there were plenty of clouds around and hordes of visitors few of whom were mindful of photographers waiting patiently. Having started at 09.00, I finished just after 18.00  Along the way there were a few occasions especially in the middle of the day when it was good to just sit back and watch the world go by but they tended not to last very long.

David Collidge's Steam Scenes website (http://www.steamscenes.org.uk/) is a fount of information and was a great help in compiling these pages.
