Welland Steam Rally

Post #1 by Jeremy Rowland » Sun Jul 26, 2015 10:24 am

Well after it had pee'd down of rain all Friday I was glad that I had not bothered to book a day off work to attend this event on the Friday; the weather was supposed to be more promising for the Saturday so I bit the bullet so as to speak and went along.
The car park on wet grass was dodgy to say the least but when the sun finally came out I could breathe a sigh of relief.
The show is superb as ever and it was great to catch up with many CMN members amongst whom was; Tony Coates, Ian Fletcher, Mike Yates, Fred 'Fowlerman' Evans, Martyn 'B100 Loader', Barry Cosslett, Paul Badger and to anybody else who I have missed (sorry) it was good to see you all and also meet new faces there.
I will attend this event on Saturdays in the future; I have normally attended on the Friday when the auction is on but there is not much machine action on the Friday so either the Saturday or Sunday are better days to see the machines in action.
I will try and post more photos of this event I did take well over 500 :dizzy: so I will need to trawl through them to see what I am going to resize to post here.
My first pics are of two well known CMN members Tony Coates and Fred Evans; more pics to come later.

I went along on Saturday to this year's (2016) event and took various photos, the majority of these being of construction and earthmoving equipment that was about. The weather on the day was warm and sunny and the event was well attended by young and old :D
Due to an unfamiliarity with my new camera I've ended up with an erroneous date and time stamp on the photos.

To start with a Priestman Mustang 150 and what I believe to be a Hitachi ZX225USLC-3.
