Full Steam Ahead for family fun at museum
Grampian Transport Museum will host an afternoon of steampowered family fun this weekend.
The Alford museum’s Full Steam Ahead event will feature all manner of steam engines, as well as a miniature train, from 1-3pm on Sunday.
Children of all ages, and grown-ups too, will be able to ride some of the vehicles and find out more about their history.
Curator Mike Ward, who often pilots the museum’s own Sentinel steam wagon, said: “We all love our steam days at Alford. It is so much part of our history and this Sunday we will be offering all visitors to the museum the chance to enjoy the sounds, smells and experience of steampowered transport.
“We close at the end of the month so this is a great opportunity for our visitors to enjoy all the wonders of our exhibitions along with a journey down memory lane to the era of steam.” A variety of steam-powered vehicles will be on show
