Shrewsbury Steam Rally 2017
Showman's Engines

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 Shrewsbury index and click here for the overall index.


The showman's engines at Shrewsbury were not 'gainfully employed' being mainly used to provide some glamour for the grand parade. This section appeared to have suffered from the switch of the GDSF date, with fewer engines than normal although I was told it was also a case of regular engines being out of service. All these engines started off life in another form, although only in two cases was conversion done in the preservation era.
