Weald of Kent Steam Rally 5-6 Aug 2017

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, show is mainly steam traction and farmers on tractors, but the classic commercial vehicle section is a reasonable turn out and the MV section grows every year.

Hi Rob,

It was good to meet you at last! This show has gained a good reputation in the 4 years that it has been running. It is very local for me and a good chance to catch up with old acquaintances. The Saturday evening entertainment with Dr. Busker was great stuff as well. I enjoy these mixed shows with steam, tractors, commercials as well as mv's.

 

The searchlight truck is a Tilling Stevens petrol electric (although I think this one might have a Perkins in it now). I well remember Bill Hooker taking his petrol one to GDSF when it was at Stourpaine (1987) and lighting up at night.

 

regards, Richard

Hope these two vids link up properly. As well as all the trucks and steam to look at every now and again the runway gets used

 

 

Second clip was taken at 0800 hrs Sunday morning while most of us campers were still waking up
