  1. I really like the traction enignes, I love the smell as they drive past, the "little" attention to details too. We have an annual Steam Rally at Hollowell and they're always driving along the country lanes to the event and if you happen to be walking down the same lane it's a unique moment, though rather noisy :o)

    1. Douglas, I haven't been to a big steam event this year. I'll have to try and get to the National Ploughing Championships next year.
      They are very awe inspiring.

  3. Wonderful engines to see Adrian.. there was a steam rally a couple of miles from me at the weekend and I only became aware of it as a Traction Engine drove passed.

  7. It's interesting that you poke around the display of different steam engines and you have a detailed understanding of how they work. I would just roam around and find it interesting and not know the principle behind them

    1. Red, I've always had an interest in them. I wish I had time to learn more or even the ability to recall what I once knew.

    1. Jay it is open several times a year but not always with the beam engine under steam.

  9. They are beautiful; no wonder so many toys were modelled after them.
