This year is the 50th annual steam traction rally in Cornwall. A huge number of engines arrive from all over the UK, some under their own power, many on low-loaders.
Here are just a few for the steam buffs. Sorry the exif data has not shown up correctly.

This second one is renamed 'Nightmare', it was caught up in a warehouse fire late 2004. The team have worked wonders getting her serviceable again, just! They celebrated in fine style in our village pub.

This beautiful machine was just simmering away quietly after a day of providing electricity for a large organ.

Thanks for the compliments. I did take a few shots of some 'Bandwagons', Volvo cross-country vehicles that we used in Norway, but wiped them from the card.
There were plenty of people sitting around in WW2 uniforms with various vehicles. I'll grab some next year. :wink:
