This is a film of a family visit to a steam rally and fair at Eggborough Power Station, and a junior school sports day.

The film begins at a fair with a steam engine, ‘The Pirate’ (KE18 – the ‘E’ is covered by the number 7) painted blue and without a hood.  Other steam tractors and traction engines follow, including “Fowler Road locomotive 1902”.

The next part of the film features a junior school sports day.  Children participate in different races.  One of the girls, Nicola, is sitting with her mother and other parents on the side-lines.
