An annual event dedicated to the world of steam engines and classic vehicles of all sizes and shapes is being held this weekend.
The 48th Weeting Steam Engine Rally and Country Show has drawn thousands of people on its first two days as people enjoyed seeing a vast array of tractors, steam engines and classic cars.
And one of the stars of the show at Weeting, near Brandon is a giant Finnish steam locomotive.
Today at 2pm the rally was officially opened by MEP Vicky Ford, who enjoyed a ride on what is believed to be the oldest surviving Charles Burrell engine, Century, with its owner Richard Parrott, owner of Fengate Farm, where the rally is being staged.
David Blackburn, the rally ringmaster, said there had been huge crowds on the first two days and the weather had been wonderful.
