Back in 1982 many of the themes for the event were already in place - with people enjoying a day in the countryside to get up close with engines and farm machinery of yesteryear and to enjoy seeing the power of steam in action.

As well as steam engines of all shapes and sizes, there was a chance to get hands-on too with more modern technology and try out some of the radio-controlled cars being marketed.
