In this book Peter Wilkes writes with tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm of the Traction Engine and its history. Step-by-step he takes the reader from early experiments of the steam age pioneers, though their ultimate success and decline, until the happy revival of the Traction Engine as the centrepiece of rallies held all over the world.

Today the Traction Engine is a preservationist's joy. Gleaming brass, great power, the might of steam, all fascinate the modern enthusiast.

Traction Engines, steam-rollers, organs, steam lorries, cars and even motor cycles and aircraft have all been powered by steam. This book tells the story.

Includes chapters on Showground Locomotives and Fairground Organs and Miniature Engines.

Condition: Very Good.
