Had two days and an evening at the GDSF as part of a package tour in 2013, and would do it all again any time if finance permitted. Great selection of Showmans Engines all powering the traditional rides and amusements and lighting the show till late evening. 2013 featured steam rollers, over 100 of them, plus a great range of other steam gear, and all other types of vintage gear and working displays covering 600 acres! Said to be the biggest vintage show in Europe. English weather was perfect in August/September. Had to visit Edinburgh to see a little rain. Every enthusiast should go at least once, it's great! Regards,
Combustor.
