(2014) WW1 Steam Convoy in Britain

I received this today and thought I'd share it.
=============================

"Amazing GDSF WW 1 Steam Convoy in Britain.
Pretty amazing these old machines still run.

Someone has put a lot of time, effort and money into these relics, including period uniforms.

For those who like old stuff and stuff that amazes."

WWI Convoy

All over the US there are Steam Clubs that every summer have Steam Ups, where they use their steam tractors to plow fields, tractor pull competitions, run saw mills and a dozen other farm/factory related tasks with their tractors and the old saw mills etc. We visited the Michigan Steam Up south of Lancing a few years back and at their steam grounds they even had a function steam crane they used to load the logs onto their saw mill rig, another steam tractor was using it's drive belt to run an antique thrashing machine.

Wayne,

Thanks for posting this, I enjoyed it very much. I also want to thank you for your service. My brother Mike was in the Marines for 22 yrs and achieved MSGT too. Have a niece and nephew in right now. My other brother Brian was in the Navy as was our sister Vanace. Another nephew and many cousins also served.

When Veteran's day is around it makes me grateful for each soldier who has served. I don't forget it any other day of the year though because I understand the cost of my freedom that I enjoy each day was not free.

Thanks again for this post and I look forward to more. have a great day! Lynne

It's interesting that these machines were 'State of the Art' in their day. I suppose people in a 100 years from now will look at our motorhomes and us as quaint!

My home town (Leyland in the UK) was the home of, the "Lancashire Steam Wagon Company" which made steam-powered. road-going commercial trucks. It eventually became Leyland motors, inventors of the double-decker bus and a major commercial vehicle manufacturer of diesel powered trucks and buses for many years. The company was destroyed by a merger with British Motor Corporation (Austin, Morris, etc.) which was forced on them by the UK Labour government in the mid 1960's.

Leyland Trucks is submerged in PACCAR these days and Leyland Bus was absorbed by Volvo.
