The annual Weeting Steam Rally organised by EATES life member Richard Parrott was once again a resounding success. Hot sunny weather across all three show days saw large crowds through the gates (and exhibitors making a beeline for the beer tent!).
As is customary on the Friday local schools were invited to attend the rally and it was fantastic to see hundreds of young children enjoying the varied exhibits on display across the show.
Both Richard Parrott and The Saunders Collection exhibited large numbers of engines, indeed enough to make a rally in their own right! In addition Mark Vine was in attendance with his unusual Mclaren/Aveling Diesel Roller hybrid and the Wyeld family were thundering around the show on their enormous Foden Road Locomotive ‘Monarch’
It’s great to see this long established rally continuing to go from strength to strength
