|These British-built traction engines were destined |
for the 'Colonial' market, as is suggested by the
wide distance between the wheels – too wide for
British roads at the time.

Argentine-built steam railway locomotives
on the site.
But this year there is to be no show. I understand the organisers are searching for another venue.
So we cyclists had a show of our own, goggling at the traction engines, railway locomotives, portable engines, pumps and even a stern wheel paddle steamer which were patiently waiting to be repaired and restored.
We hope they can find a suitable venue for next year. It really is a show like no other.
