Planning Miniature Traction Engine Weekend...

Hi guys. This morning, in the pouring rain, a few of us stood at Market Bosworth planning some of the events for the season which lies ahead. My event is of course Miniature Traction Engine Weekend, which is due to take place on April 27th/28th, 10:30am until 5pm. The event will centre around Market Bosworth Station and will include at least 20 miniature traction engines in steam both days, amongst a good few other exhibits. The main thing about planning the event is ensuring that there is enough space for A) all of the engines and, B) all of their kit! On average an engine will turn up with a car, a trailer and a caravan, not to mention the space required for the engine itself! I'm sure it will all be fine when the weekend arrives but, as the old saying goes, "Fail to Plan...Plan to Fail". One of the engines that will be attending the event is a beautiful 6" Allchin Royal Chester, named "Abbie Jane" (photo courtesy of Malcolm Ranieri)...
Thanks for reading guys. Tomorrow I'm back at Shackerstone and I believe we are on the P-Way - probably in the rain!! Sam.
