The International Steam Pages


Camborne Trevithick Day, (27th April, 2019)

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 2019.


On the last Saturday of April each year, the good people of Camborne come together to have a giant street party to celebrate the town's most famous son, Richard Trevithick. Naturally steam engines are the centre piece and after being on show during the day, they parade round the town in the afternoon. 

It was the least memorable of our three visits, not because of deficiencies in organisation but because the strong, cold winds severely curtailed the street entertainment and reduced the crowds to a fraction of normal. It was a shame because a huge amount of work goes into the preparation. For the photographer, the sun made only the briefest of appearances until around the time of the steam engine parade, not that I was over concerned as a core of engines appear each year and I had done very well in 2017 and 2018. It could have been worse because both the Friday and the Sunday were overcast with some rain. This year's programme listed some 29 engines, of these 6 were not present, but there were 3 'extras'.

Fortunately, I believe none of the photographs of the 'repeat' attendees below duplicate those used before and amazingly all bar the 'Puffing Devil' brought their own portable sun to shine at just the right time. It will be a hard act to follow next time we go as photographic locations are very limited.
