With the current Melbourne heatwave we decided to head in to Steamfest early to avoid the afternoon sun which was a good move. Crowd numbers seemed to be down but all my favorites were on show including traction engines, stationary engines, tools and books. For me the highlight was the locomobile replica which just happened to be for sale. Unfortunately I'm not looking for another project right now. Well worth the visit but I hope it will be a bit cooler next year.
