Traction Engines and Steam Vehicles

This Gallery collection is about traction engines and other steam powered machines. In South Africa these are becoming increasingly rare, while in the UK it is a different story altogether. I have been to a number of steam powered events, and these are some of the images from there.

Interestingly enough, the James Hall Museum of Transport in Johannesburg has a wonderful collection of these machines, but they no longer operate any working examples. Some links open in the Musings blog.
