The Great Dorset Steam Fair 2017

Posted by Freddie Lines on 1 September 2017

Last weekend was the Great Dorset Steam Fair in which we were present with two fine living boxes and a tractor. Our director Alan’s passion for everything steam can be seen whenever there is an event such as this one.

The 49th annual Great Dorset Steam Fair was the biggest yet. Playing host to countless steam engines, 6 music stages catering to everyone’s tastes, many craft stalls, numerous food/drink outlets and an estimated 250,000 visitors.

We were proud to be a part of this event. Roll on the 50th anniversary next year, may it be grander still!

This is the first of 6 units of Cat 740 to be refurbished by our workshops.

We all feel that Steve and his team have really completed a first class job and all credit to them!!

Apart from the cosmetic paint and decals a huge amount of work was carried out to all bearings,hitch,hydraulics engine and cab much of this work you cannot see that has been done.

This Dumptruck will return to Torr Works Quarry to go back to work with some of the other fleet.

Good Job Well Done!!
