Letting off steam!

So the weather could have been a bit kinder, but did it really matter? STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway was packed to the rafters with railway enthusiasts old and young, while outside eight traction engines blew in chorus to the sound of the replica hooter.

There was something to interest everyone at the Swindon Railway Festival, and I'm going to do it all over again tomorrow.

Come down to STEAM, Fire Fly Avenue for Part II of the Railway Festival 10 am - 5 pm.
