Synopsis:
The trusty traction engines were the workhorses of British agriculture and industry at the turn of the century. They were used for many purposes; powering fairgrounds, making roads, threshing the corn and hauling huge loads all over the country. You might think that the skills of the engine men died with them, but this is not the case as you will see in this feature. "Traction Engines At Work" is an education in itself, as we show you preserved machines doing the jobs for which they were designed. Featuring heavy haulage, steam ploughing, threshing, wood sawing, road making, steam on the fairground and a general view of working with steam.
