Steamfest: Two days of fun for all the family

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The Maitland Toyota Hunter Valley Steamfest is Australia’s premier festival of steam.
The 28th annual Steamfest will take place at the Maitland Railway Station precinct this Saturday and Sunday.
Steamfest was established in 1986 following the closure of the last coal operating steam haulage freight service in Australia on the South Maitland Railway in 1983.
Highlights of this magnificent steam-filled weekend include the popular Great Train Race on Sunday morning, a grand parade on the rally ground covering the evolution of transport through time, and the Steamfest bazaar with more than 100 market and food stalls.
