Abergavenny Steam Rally (23rd - 25th 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.


Abergavenny is a 'small rally' based in Bailey Park in the heart of the town. As in 2014, we had only a brief visit in the morning as we were 'double booked', as apparently were some of the engines, there being just 11 this year, well down on the rally in its heyday  We had again missed the road run on the Sunday as it was raining at home at the time (we live barely 30 miles away). It's an 'intimate' show. but we got the distinct feeling that the steam engines were considered 'hard work' as far as the organisers were concerned. We had to be gone before 12.00 by which time the engines were mainly still warming up. It seemed there would have been a saw bench working later, probably worked by Fowler 9225.

Details below were taken from the engines and also David Collidge's Steam Scenes site http://www.steamscenes.org.uk/ which continues to be the most reliable source of information.
