The International Steam Pages
Camborne Trevithick Day 2017
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 Trevithick Day index and click here for the overall 2017 index.
As usual, the camera lies, there were a lot more cloudy moments than sunny ones and together with the large crowds, this made photography a little challenging. The vast majority of the engines recorded as can be deduced from the links are based in Cornwall.
There is a short clip of Aveling and Porter roller 'Major' storming into Camborne in the early morning on my YouTube chgannel - https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=TxhnG_z-X8I.
