  • These are not trains, they are tractors

  • These are actually traction engines. Not exactly rare in the UK, they were built to last in the days of massive over-engineering and they have lasted well. I have driven one, and they are fantastic machines.
    The ones shown are all agricultural – there are also ploughing engines which are rarer; they usually have enormous winches under the boiler. The other main type is the Showman’s engine which has lots of twisted brass, lights and a large belt driven generator on the front.
