027We couldn't let the Dorset Steam Fair pass us by at Transport Cafe - especially with so much in the way of vintage and classic trucks - so our friend Anne-Claire Heels got snap-happy while there last weekend. 

It was the 46th year of the show and was held, as always, at the village of Tarrant Hinton, near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside. Not even iffy weather could dampen the excitement and atmosphere.

Nearly 400 commercial vehicles were on show this year, bearing a wide selection of familiar names in British road haulage.

Here is our snapshot of one of Europe's largest outdoor event locations as we look back at how people used to live, as well as the stars of the British haulage industry!

Leyland Trucks - Main ImageThe 7th Classic and Vintage Commercial Show took place last weekend in Gaydon at the Heritage Motor Museum, showcasing an impressive collection of trucks, vans, buses and tractors that got everyone snapping away.

Over the two days there was a diverse selection of vehicles pre-1989 including popular makes such as Bedford, ERF, Foden and Leyland. Proud owners travelled from all over the country to showcase their piece of commercial vehicle history, taking all who saw them on a trip down memory lane.
