Once again a great event. People always seem to enjoy themselves. Thanks to everyone involved behind the scenes. The young volunteers are also a credit to TCA.
The launch of the moorings went well. It was good for people to get a mention too.
I felt the café service was good this year and Kath’s faggots and peas went down well.
My only feedback would be to have more craft/demonstration stalls. I enjoyed the rug making.

It was a pleasure to be invited and to attend this event. Whilst it was something just a little bit different from our usual steam rally type events, it had a fantastic atmosphere. It was really great to see so many organisations getting together and the people of Tipton supporting and enjoying the day. I've not seen so many smiling faces for a long time. The general public showed a lot of interest in our old engines and, as is usual in the Black Country, I had some very interesting conversations with retired chaps who had worked in the various engineering shops and foundries which are now sadly history. Hopefully we will have the chance to attend again next year.
