Abbey Hill Steam Rally 2018

So in May, we were back at Abbey Hill once again in the marquee.

After one of the coldest weekends at Wimborne during the beast from the east, we faced one of the hottest weekends on our next outing!

Thankfully the layout held up really well and didn’t suffer with the extreme heat – no plastic to warp in the sun!

During our time at Abbey Hill I decided that in order to raise the funds to pay for the recently acquired Beyer Garratt, the blue & grey EMU needed to go. I have all the graphics files so replacing it shouldn’t prove to be too difficult, when I get around to it. Within 30 minutes of being listed, the EMU reached its Buy it Now price and was then safely packed away ready for posting when I got home. Sorry to see it go but needs must.

Whereas in previous years, we’ve ended up shutting up shop early due to poor weather, so such issues this time! – The sun shone for the whole Bank Holiday weekend.

Plenty of visitors through the marquee and lots of interest.

Next year however we have a diary clash, so we won’t be at Abbey Hill in 2019.
