Traction Engines

For almost a hundred years traction engines and steam rollers played an important role in road transport and construction with their use declining by 1940 as they were displaced by petrol and diesel powered vehicles. At Bredgar we were custodian of three road locomotives each of which has an interesting history however is 2017 the Showman’s engine and the Road Roller we sold. The General purpose Garrett has been restored back to working condition in 2017 and will be seen in steam and working machines on most open days next year.
