Bill Targett Steam Rally 2013

These images were taken at the Bill Targett Steam Rally which was held in Eastleigh, Hants on 18 and 19 May 2013. There were some really nice steam engines there, possibly the most I have ever seen in one place that were not derelict. Unfortunately the weather was not great, but I did get a lot of excellent images which I hope to populate this page with. My favourite has to be a Foreman tractor called “The Hamster”, while for sheer impressive it is hard to beat the Fowler Ploughing Engine, and while she is huge and slow I bet she is pure HP.
