Another brilliant collection of photographs and detailed information covering traction engines that, over the years, have worked, rusted and been restored into loving preservation.
New to the Old Glory Collectors Series is Traction Engines 5, which is another brilliant, 100-page bookazine that’s packed with content that’ll fascinate traction engine enthusiasts everywhere.
This is the penultimate instalment of Peter Love’s six-part series looking at the manufacturers of steam traction engines – the machines that toiled on the farm, pulling loads, driving machinery such as threshers and saw benches, and working on the land.
Using mostly previously unpublished images, this instalment in the popular series continues the alphabetical progression through the engine builders, this time covering Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies (continued from Part Four), Robey and Ruston Proctor.
From black and white archive pictures of machines in their working days, through to wonderful photographed of expertly restored machines in all their colourful glory, this book delivers an absorbing snapshot of these giant machines at various important stages in their lives, offering a uniquely personal account of many engines that have survived into restored retirement, and others that haven’t been so lucky.
