Strawberries and Steam Rally (27th - 28th June, 2014)

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 2014.


The Strawberries and Steam Rally at Wanborough (east Swindon), like that at Kelsall, was one that I found about very late in the day, coinciding with our long planned visit to Bloxham / Banbury. On the basis that it was less likely to provide working steam, we elected to go on the first day when the weather forecast was somewhat mixed. So mixed, in fact that we almost turned back at Cricklade. Eventually the lure of steam was too strong and we only had to take shelter in the beer tent once during our morning visit, albeit the sun was invisible throughout. Going home needless to say we spent half the journey under clear blue skies although there had obviously been downpours. No doubt there will be pictures in the Traction Talk forum (registration required) that show that we should have had more patience. Anyway there's always next year and it's only an hour from home. Maybe then we'll need some of their strawberries but at the moment we have a glut here. The show was only 'small' in the sense that the number of non-steam vehicles was quite limited (I am not complaining) and I recorded 29 steam engines, which was had been promised and the organisers are to be commended for their recruiting such a splendid variety.

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