Transport enthusiasts were today enjoying a host of classic engines at the annual Shrewsbury Steam Rally.
Thousands of people visited Onslow Park yesterday for the first day of the two-day event and many more were expected today.
Visitors have the chance to see working steam engines driven around the main arena. The event, organised by the Steam Engine Society, also features steam ploughs, harvesting machines and old tractors.

Today’s visitors were encouraged to dress in vintage costume from the 1930s through to the 1960s. Participants will be judged throughout the day before being invited to a final judging in the main arena at 4pm.
There are cash prizes of £100, £50 and £25 for the best outfits. Other attractions include a wall of death motorcycle demonstration by the Messham family and popular displays like the tractor pulling contest and falconry show are back for another year.
Society chairman John Onions said: “Around 70 highly attractive steam engines will be demonstrating the engineering excellence of yesteryear and the remarkable restoration by steam enthusiasts, providing a wonderful showcase.
“It is a sensational spectacle that delights our audience year after year.”
