The International Steam Pages

Welland Steam Rally (29th - 31st July, 2016)

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 2016 introduction and overall index.

This was our fourth Welland Rally and as before, it was a really special show. However, the main visit for the weekend was to be to Boconnoc. As that is a very long day trip, we took it easy at Welland, something that was made easier by the sun more or less disappearing by 13.00 on both Friday and Saturday so we were home before 17.00. As a result, the quality of the coverage here is very patchy, those engines parked facing north-west (roughly half in other words) and virtually all the showman's engines were more than challenging photographically and at least half the pictures I have uploaded are not up to standard in my eyes. Still, having done very well here in the last three years. it's hardly a disaster.

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