The St.Albans Steam and Vintage Show is held at the end of May, at Oaklands College St.Albans, Hertfordshire. The event was formerly the Leighton Buzzard Bypass Rally till its move to St. Albans in 2009. The Rally is organised by the Hertfordshire Steam Engine Preservation Society to raise money for local Industrial Preservation charities and good causes in the area with other local groups providing assistance with the gates, car parking etc..


The 2009 event was the 43rdh that has been held. The Oaklands College site was a new venue for the event as the former site by the Leighton Buzzard bypass was suffering from problems with waterlogged ground over the last few seasons, forcing the committee to find a new site with better ground conditions.

The event is run as a National Traction Engine Trust Authorised Event.
