Traction Engine in Westhope

13 Oct

Outside the house, yesterday. Neighbour, Chris on his friend’s Foden Traction Engine. It does 8 miles to the hundredweight of steam coal. Originally sent out to Tasmania it later moved to Melbourne and was repatriated back to Britain ten years ago. That’s how long it took to rebuild it.
