No steampunk today

The 3rd/4th June was the miniature traction engine and steampunk weekend at the Buckingham Railway Centre in Quainton. We went today fully expecting to see street performers, musicians and lots of steampunk afficionados wandering around lots of steampunk market stalls. Thats what the website said, but it was wrong. There was very little to see at all, and surprisingly few visitors wandering around. I thought maybe we had gone on the wrong weekend but then we spotted a few market stalls inside. Most disappointing given the pretty steep entrance ticket price. The miniature traction engines outside in the carpark however were a joy to behold and that saved the day for us. I took quite a few photos with my Leica Digilux 2 (5 megapixel behemoth from 2004). I think we will be giving the railway centre a rest for a while.
