The International Steam Pages


Cromford Steam Rally, (5th - 6th, August 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 overall index for 2017.


The Cromford Steam Rally was in its 47th year and proud to be an unreconstructed steam rally. This was a rush visit at the end of the show from 15.00 on the Sunday on our way home from Yorkshire and a morning visiting the original 6998 near Driffield, which is a splendid unmodified Elizabethan Hall and Gardens. It was very overcast and the last engines were arriving for the Grand Parade, so I was restricted for the most part to photographing the engines returning up the muddy slope to their pegs and then preparing to go home. Being barely 10 miles from the Belper event we attended in June, not surprisingly there was a degree of commonality in the engines on show.

Showman's Engines

Some compensation for having to pick his way through the mud for the owner of 'Queen of Great Britain', he was right chuffed as you can tell.
