To be held on September 17 and 18 at Hawkesbury Showground, the event serves as the annual display of all manner of classic engines, cars, trucks, tractors and models, organised by the Sydney Antique Machinery Club.

There will be plenty to see, with hundreds of running motors, steam powered sawmilling, a tractor pull display, hundreds of trucks and cars, and of course the steam trains will be blowing their whistles as they pass through Clarendon Station.

This year’s event also incorporated the Model and Hobby Show, the Kenworth Klassic TruckShow and the annual flyball competition of Fly Dogs Australia.

As always, there will be amusements for younger visitors, food stalls aplenty, swap meet vendors and something to see at every enclosure.

Vintage double decker buses will be running a shuttle service all weekend between Richmond Station and the rally site.

The rally has grown from a relatively small meet some 20 years ago to the large scale event it is today –600 exhibitors taking up residence at the showground.

“Last year, apart from over 4000 people who came from most Australian states, we had two groups from New Zealand and two people from Scotland,” said event publicity officer Stephen Gummerson.

Once again theLachlan Valley Railways has agreed to bring their steam trains to this years event.

Visitors will be able to take a nostalgic journey back in time as the steam train hauls along the rural branch line from Richmond to Mulgrave and back again.The short shuttle trip takes about 45 minutes. Train tickets are $15 foradults and $10 for children under 16.
