The age of the traction engine is now past, but these beautiful images of romantic leviathans of road and field excite great interest among not only those who remember them in their heyday but also those brought up in the age of the lorry and tractor.
Author Malcolm Ranieri, who has been photographing preserved steam for more than twenty years, has assembled this classic selection of photographs of the best of British traction engines, rollers, steam wagons and more. Photographed at work and at rest at locations all over the United Kingdom, all the major manufacturers - with famous names like Fowler, Burrell and Aveling & Porter - are represented, along with many rarer makes. Also including some beautiful archive photographs of engines at work in their heyday, this celebration of steam on the road and in the field will be appreciated by all enthusiasts of these magnificent machines.
