The International Steam Pages


Kettering Vintage Rally and Steam Fayre (25th - 26th September, 2021)

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 2021.


Effectively the truncated 2021 steam rally season is over, few brave organisers will schedule their events for the second half of September but that worked in theiir favour this year. We knew that It's at the small end of the scale and so were not disappointed to find just 12 engines on show. Sadly I suffered simultaneous partial failures of brain and cameras, I didn't make the most of my opportunities and several of the pictures are not of the quality I would have expected in the conditions. 

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.
