I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms as the Great Dorset Steam Rally is this week at Blandford Forum and I haven't been able to go this year; it is a GREAT day out.

This was taken several years ago and I love the smoke from the second engine which is pulling the heavy load up Watford Gap in the "playpen". It looks as though Charlie (who is driving the first engine, Suzie) is just out for a jolly as his engine isn't doing much work!

Apparently the playpen was a dust bath this year as they have been having very hot weather, but had a welcome rain shower this evening.

A fine image with the smoke rising to go out of focus - well done, Ju.

Captured the atmosphere of the rally very well.

I didn't go this year either as it clashed with the air festival

Well done Ju great atmosphere in these old workhorses. I have not been to the Steam Fair for quite some years and would love to do it again.. maybe a good idea for a group event next year.
