'[EE]:: Glenbrook Steam Festival - not rocket scien'
2007\02\24@084627 by Russell McMahon

About 1400 photos taken in 3 hours. The camera is still glowing dull
red some weeks later [ :-) ].
These were taken in "something of a hurry" and not all are as good as
might be but there are many many nice and useful photos. Posted
largely as is as no time to sort this many at present but many
worthwhile enough as is (sez I anyway).

Not rocket science or electronics but liable to be of interest to some
or even many on ARocket and PICList.

Anyone interested in old machinery, steam power, traction engines,
vintage carousels, vintage and veteran cars, stationary engines,
Stirling engines, steam locomotives, shunting engines, Clydesdale
horses, tractors, vintage farm machinery, Morgans, Bugattis, Whites,
.... may find this of interest.

"Steam Festival" held recently on the site of a permanent vintage
railway at Glenbrook about 30 miles south of Auckland city.

Largest collection of vintage Traction Engines ever assembled in NZ.
