Those who are fascinated by the age of steam can indulge this weekend at Steamfest in Scoresby. There are displays of industrial steam and diesel engines, blacksmithing, hay baling, earth moving machinery, model displays, vintage radio, fire engines, vintage vehicles and a tank. There is even a walking dragline that doesn’t use wheels, but “walks” on two giant feet.
There is a miniature railway or a tractor to see around the displays, at the National Steam Centre in Ferntree Gully Road. Thomas and his friends will be on the model railway to delight the kids. Refreshments are available.
