Great Dorset Steam Rally

By JuBarney
This wonderful steam rally starts TODAY and runs for five days.
I wish I was there to enjoy all the old steam engines which often pull heavy loads up "Watford Gap" like these two Burrells, with a third engine pushing at the back. You can just make out the fairground in the BG. There is so much to see there and there are interests for everyone, including old cars, tractors and motor bikes, a craft tent, food tent, and working horse displays.

If you go to the rally I hope you have a terrific day; I am hoping to make it there tomorrow.

A grand photo, the Rally and Fair area appears vast, much as the power in those steam engines. I couldn't help laughing at my own joke as I looked at the photo that someone without any sense of history judging this photo would say that it would be much improved 'if the was some blur in the wheels'! Silly of course, I know. Dorset is too far for me but I hope you get some more shots.

Powerful looking beasts you've captured Ju. Do so love these old engines, and the smell and noise they produce is of a bygone age.
