Thurlow Steam and Country Rally 2004
Thurlow is an excellent Medium size Rally with a large numbers of "Hot Fog" Producers. I am of course referring to Steam engines and there were 25 this year. There were around 60 Stationary engines with a good selection of rare and unusual ones however, most of them I have already featured this year but, hopefully there are a few below that I haven't As usual there was some good entertainment in the ring, especially on Sunday with a display of motorbikes, 4 wheel drives and quads getting up to all sorts of antics from going through fire and leaping over large ramps.
