The International Steam Pages


Great Dorset Steam Fair 2019
Portable Engines

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 GDSF2019 main index and click here for the overall 2019 index.

The complete portables were scattered around the event but at least they didn't move around as far as I am aware. There were several incomplete portables in the scrap yard and these are listed on a separate page.


Portables by Clayton and Shuttleworth, Robey, Ruston, Proctor and Ruston and Hornsby are in the City of Lincoln section. I was pleased to see that a goodly number of these engines were active around the site.
