The hiss and whistle of steam engines has stirred feelings of yesteryear at this year’s Strumpshaw Steam Rally.

Dozens of beautifully preserved steam engines of every shape and size have gone on show at the 2014 rally, which draws crowds to the village of Strumpshaw, near Norwich.

The annual event at Strumpshaw Park is not only a popular get together for enthusiasts, but it helps raise vital funds to keep the Strumpshaw Steam Museum open.

The museum, which opened on its current site in 1954, houses what is believed to be the largest private collection of steam engines in the UK.

The rally runs until tomorrow. Alongside the smell of oil, clouds of white smoke and familiar sounds of steam engines, there are fun fair attractions, main ring displays, organ music and classic cars.
