The International Steam Pages

Old Warden Steam Rally (September 15th - 17th, 2017)

This is one of a series of pages I have uploaded to illustrate facets of the steam rallies we have attended in the UK. Click here for the 2017 introduction and overall index.

We had been to Old Warden in 2013/14/16 and it was too early for a full repeat weekend. However, we did visit on the Friday on our way east to visit non-steam friends in Suffolk where we would attend the Grand Henham Steam Rally with them. As such, I never expected to achieve the kind of photographic coverage I strive for, but I was certain I would enjoy the visit as long as the rain held off but the forecasts suggested otherwise. In the event I was granted morning sunshine equivalent to one minute per engine to be recorded and photographed - mission impossible. Never mind, there's rarely someone standing in the way in a down pour and in the circumstances I was well satisfied.

I had no time to record the steam cars, bitzas and the working areas.

David Collidge's Steam Scenes website ( is a fount of information and was a great help in compiling these pages.
