A festival of steam at the Pickering Traction Engine Steam Rally in August this year, Pickering is in North Yorkshire and one of the gateways to the North Yorkshire Moors and home of the famous Steam Train from Pickering to Whitby.

Below is just a few of the steam engines taken that day, the ones shown are just being fired up ready to roll around the show ground, I will post pics of them later.

Please visit Mrs Nesbitts Place for ABC WEDNESDAY see links below

Amazing steam engines & beautifully restored...I am assuming they are very old & original. Festivals of all sorts are such fun & attract enthusiasts, and people looking for an interesting day out.

Man, they sure knew how to build a nice looking machine in those days...

Being a city girl I never really grew up around engines or trucks, but I've always had a thing for shiny tractors and your photos are fascinating. I never realized how lovely steam engines could be.

Barbara Martin said...

Thanks for sharing this information and photos on steam engines. I remember seeing a few when in the late 1950s during special exhibitiions.

These photos are wonderful and remind me of Thomas the Tank Engine, or The Hogwart's Express!
