The International Steam Pages


Strumpshaw Steam Rally 2016
The Steam Museum

This is one of a series of pages which I have uploaded to illustrate facets of steam rallies we have attended in the UK (since 2013). 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 Strumpshaw index and click here for the overall 2016 index.


Only a small proportion of the collection at Strumpshaw is active at any one time, the rest are displayed in a purpose built hall in a traditional manner which allows for comfortable photography (with a moderate wide angle lens). With the rally going on outside, I barely had time to crack off a set of pictures. However, there is much more to the museum than the road engines, there is this beam engine and numerous other stationary steam and diesel engines. Foden wagon 13802 and Burrell showman's engine 3796 were in a separate shed to the side, the latter under repair and the former presumably due to join the rally as it was listed in the programme, hence its inclusion in the main section.
