Excitment is building around the club as members put final touches to their exhibits and displays.
The railway group are particularly delighted to have two visiting locos on the track this year.
This beautifully detailed loco 4400 is on loan from Dinosaur World.

The team restoring the engines of the Steam tug Lytelton II have been trialling the steam supply and hope to have the engines running on steam power for the rally.

All those steam engine boilers burn a heap of wood which has to be split and stacked.
