I have never seen so many beautifully maintained steam powered engines and vehicles in one place. And the atmosphere was one of fun and sharing enthusiasm.
One of the best parts of today was a lighthorse re-enactment, ably commentated, which explained the various exercises of the group. Attention to detail in uniform and even exact replicas and original pieces of saddlery were wonderful.
We also had a ride on the steam train, which was fun and saw parts of the show from a different perspective as we chugged past.
So if you're in Tasmania next March long weekend, head down to Sheffield. You won't be disappointed!
