Hundreds of people visited the popular Steam Extravaganza over the weekend in Christchurch. The two day event was organised by the Canterbury steam preservation society.The Steam Scene Society was formed in 1968 to bring together all those interested in steam driven machinery of all types and in preserving and exhibiting such machinery. A large Traction Engine Rally and Steam Exhibition was held at Templeton in 1969 and shortly after it was decided to seek suitable land to form a “home” for the society and to enable a permanent operating steam museum to be set up. At this time the North Canterbury Catchment Board (now Environment Canterbury) was opening up McLeans Island as a recreational area and the society was fortunate in obtaining the lease of the 30 acres of land you see today.
