Recently there was held a steam festival in an open-air farm museum with all kind of live demonstration of old agricultural implement, like stationary threshing machines run by steam engines. But also lots of various big original steam traction engines as well as smaller re-build scaled models which freely moved around the museum area, or in case of the scale modelling steam locomotives on the museum's own steam railway course.
In short lots of steaming, huffing and puffing engines


#1 | "The Tramp"



#2 | "Chas Burrell & Sons Ltd., Thetford England"



#3 | "Keck-Gonnerman traction engine from 1924"



#4 | "Toughened glass"



#5 | "Spoked wheel"


all shots: a7 + Voigtländer Macro APO-Lanthar 65/2

Beautiful shots of some beautiful old machinery (and also that colourful character who presumably keeps 'The Tramp' in working condition).
Love the tightly framed details in ##2 and 4.
Thanks for sharing.

I love these kind of gatherings. Always attracting people like the guy you portrayed in #1.
And a fine view to get an idea of what was shown

Thanks for sharing

I can imagine that at such an event there are so many motifs of steam engines
and their details that you have to press the release button of
the camera again and again.
Great photos, especially #1. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice series Michael. The character in #1 is the topping on this fine cake. TFS
