The International Steam Pages


Great Dorset Steam Fair 2018
The Scrapyard

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 GDSF2018 main index and click here for the overall 2018 index.

This was an innovation for GDSF 2019, an area fenced off with corrugated iron enclosing an array of engines which varied from battered but steamable through eminently restorable to bare bones to mission near impossible. Many of the 'bottom end' were marked up 'for sale' and I suspect most of the rest were too. I didn't bother to photograph the BR (western region) locomotive 7027 'Thornbury Castle' which was in 'post-Barry' unrestored condition.

Those listed below are mainly portables. the other engines are shown among their peers on the appropriate pages. The main reason for separating the portables is that it gives me an excuse to include some general pictures. Several bear no identification.
