The Great Dorset Steam Rally

By JuBarney
An old image reworked a bit just to remind everyone the Great Dorset Steam Rally is on from yesterday (had to go to the vets!) until Monday. It is a wonderful place to admire old tractors and steam engines, motorbikes, old vehicles, horses, craft stalls, a food tent, ordinary stalls and tat, and a lot more. Wish I was there!

This shot was extremely rare as it shows four showman's engines pulling/pushing the heavy load up "Watford Gap" in the playpen. (Usually showman's engines are stationery in a line up, looking highly polished, and perhaps generating for a showground ride) The men on the heavy load jump off at the top of the hill to manually apply brakes to the load to go down the other side.

Hoping you all have a good weekend.
