A few days on from the 2019 steam fair, here is a post with a few photographic highlights – which are a sample of what is contained within a new gallery (see headings ‘Gallery’ then ‘Great North Steam Fair 2019’ – the gallery will be growing over coming weeks so do please check back if you wish to see a particular vehicle or favourite image!
We had a staggering 23,039 visitors attend the event this year, a remarkable achievement but one that also showed up areas of pressure that we will be considering – not least car parking and exhibitor camping. It was also a little tight in places around the site, given the sheer number of visitors moving around the exhibits.
Thank you to all of those who came and helped to make it such a successful event, the cast is probably something like 200, on top of the hundreds of Beamish staff and volunteers who enable the event to run so smoothly. The question is, how do we improve on this…!!!
