Traction Engine Pictures Wanted

  • Posted on 16 September 2012 at 07:14pm. Categories | Can You Help?

Do you have any old and interesting photographs of steam engines in your family collection?

This may be black and white working photographs such as this example of a Marshall Tractor which I was sent:

Where possibly I may be able to identify the engine feature and give you more information previous owners etc.

Or collections of more recent steam rally photographs, either in photograph, slide or digital form.

Anything pre-2000 is of particular interest. This picture was sent to me by a lady who's father had been an avid photographer of engines in the North West of England:

The lady who gave me these photographs commented that her father would have been very pleased that his photographs were being shared and could be seen by everybody, not stuck unseen gathering dust somewhere.

Pictures will be added to Steam Scenes for everybody to see, I will index the engines featured so they will appear with more recent pictures and I will be more than happy to credit the original photographer.

I can arrange for pictures to be returned to you if you wish and I will happily cover inbound and outbound postage costs.

Please contact me via my contact page or if you prefer send me your details straight to david@steamscenes.org.uk - I would be delighted to here from you.
