  • Steam traction engines

Can any of our readers provide information on the use of steam traction engines in Singapore, and whether any engines can be found there today?

We ask this question because a friend of ours sent us a bookmark with what appears to be a steam traction engine on it, in an envelope stating this was a souvenir of Singapore.

The friend, Andrew Torchia, is head of the Associated Press Bureau in Stockholm, and travels while on vacation.

He sent the souvenir with the cryptic question: 'A steam machine from Singapore?'

Evidently he did not have the time to do his own research probably had to travel on to his next destination.

Andy knows of our interest in steam and IMA from the time he was with the Associated Press in London. We always did research on steam when we went there.
