The International Steam Pages


Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza (2nd - 4th May, 2015)

This is one of a series of pages which I have uploaded to illustrate facets of steam rallies we have attended in the UK. Such events occur all over the country in the summer months, they are easily found by using your favourite search engine and may have anything between a handful of steam engines and hundreds (as at the Great Dorset Steam Fair which could probably be fairly described as having an excess of riches). Click here for the overall index for 2015.


The annual Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza attracts large numbers of visitors to the town although the only things Victorian are the buildings, some of the costumes, a centre engine and a few of the 20 or so steam road engines which are paraded round the streets at 13.00 each day and then parked as a 'visitor attraction'. Otherwise it is a giant street funfair with a few 'live acts'. I did not visit the parallel Transport Festival as I understood that the only steam there was miniature. Instead, I took the opportunity to visit the Great Orme Tramway which has long been on my 'hit list'.

The organisers have an inflexible rule that exhibits must have 'rubbers' which rules out many engines including steam rollers. Nevertheless, it is very popular among the (qualifying) engine owners who are keen to maintain their invitations, in at one case this year arranging for a substitute when theirs was not available.

Details below were taken from my personal records which rely heavily on David Collidge's Steam Scenes site http://www.steamscenes.org.uk/ which continues to be the most reliable source of information.

On the Monday, the seven Fodens (plus a miniature) were all grouped together for the Grand Parade, I've uploaded a YouTube video for their many fans - http://youtu.be/qmdnIZJksV0.
