This old Steamies may not for sale to export them out of england.

The Brits should reproduced this wonderfull Lokomobile to export this all over the worlkd. That will be a big business. I will buy one for shure.

The hard work the Restoration Team put in to give life to these bygone days iron horses is indeed praise worthy. Bouquet from India.

really fantastic


I remember watching a Steam Rally slowly chuff-chuff its way through the streets of Chester, far too many years ago.. (around 1975 I think, I was 13 then..). It made a HUGE impression on me at the time. We watched from the Rows on upper Bridge Street so had a grandstand view of each engine as they went past. I didn`t count them but I`m almost certain there were around 20 different vehicles at least. I can still smell the coal burning and see the clouds of steam and smoke in my minds eye. Ahhh, Nostalgia.. :)

Edit:- 12:12 Was that Baldrick bringing up the rear?? LOL :)


100 years. A lifetime ago. It's amazing how far technology has progressed from these iron behemoths.

The Holt 60 on the original Low-Loader under triple power is brilliant!

It's amazing how quiet steam is compared to ICE at low speeds. Imagine modern diesels with the same pulling power as those tractors. They would hurt your eardrums if you stood next to them like this camera man did

21:50 : And the lads all marched away to war...


machinery works after 100 years. buy a mercedes today and it will work 5 years while breaking down every year.


so cool seeing that old tech

Looking at these vehicles no wonder frontline wasn't moving much lol.

Thank you very much for this wonderful video. I found it to be interesting and entertaining. Greetings from an old guy in the USA. I've been fortunate to have enjoyed your great country several times. I love it.

Hacía falta valor para ir a la guerra con esos cacharros. Y fueron, que es lo grande.


my fav part is at 6:15 when the guy pans into focus rolling the steam train by hand??? haha

Who the hell gave permission for these hooligans to be tearing around our rural highways.

Vehicles were interesting but men playing WW1 dress up is a little weird..."there's a good laddy, now off to the trenches in Verdun for a bit of mustard gas"..


Did the originals have rear wheels with all steel wheels for "off road use" ?

Boyan Mladenov 

Very impressive footage, I really enjoyed, thanks

Even the soldiers are walking like Charlie Chaplin most appropriate for that time and age. :)


By the time the steam tractors get those tanks to the front the war will be over.
