Coming and Going

For the next few days I am going to be posting photos taken at the Maitland Steamfest last Sunday.

This chap was having great fun trundling around the events area at the Steamfest driving his traction engine.

Definitely big boys toys.
What a beauty ... looks well maintained ..

It might be big and heavy but, strangely, elegant too.

Interesting tractor- the configuration is so much different than the ones we have here. Good shot!

Oh what a wonderful oldie Babs. No, not you, you goose, the traction engine.

@pyrrhula Thanks for the link, what a beauty, you are very clever making this gorgeous engine.

@carole_sandford You must have had a very fit grandad they don't look easy to drive, especially turning them round. Grandad must have had muscles like Samson

There were an awful lot of rather grubby looking chaps all enjoying playing with these wonderful machines at the Steamfest. They must have gone home covered in coal dust but all had happy faces.
