Steam Traction Engines, Road and Agriculture

Agricultural Yesteryear rallies have been becoming more and more popular since the early 1970s. Almost every weekend from Spring to Autumn has a venue somewhere in the UK. These rallies are not confined to traction engines and are often linked with vintage transport and Classic Cars or military transport.
Steam driven fairground rides are to be found at the larger rallies, together with other traditional fairground attractions such as the Wall of Death.
For a description of the different types of engine, the history of the development of these engines and more photos visit the pages of The Threshers Bush Steam Engine Club, who organise an annual Steamup and Easter Road Run. Details of the Run and other events are also to be found on the site.
