You are here:

For one weekend only, see the working steam traction engines that help build our city and roads. Lovingly restored, these impressive machines are guaranteed to give the wow factor.

Join this great group of enthusiasts for a spectacular look at these mobile steam engines. Developed in the 19th century, they were used into the 1950s for jobs such as hauling heavy loads, road building, and as movable engines for everything from farm work to fairgrounds.

This is a rare opportunity to see some of these beautiful machines in steam and to discover each one's unique story from the people who restored them.
