Synopsis

Steam traction engines were most widespread in Scotland from the 1880s until the 1940s - mainly for road haulage, powering threshing mills, ploughing and,in steam roller form, in road making. The book describes the use of steam power on Scotland road and field, and places National Museum Scotland's 1907 traction engine in its historical context with details of its construction, acquisition and restoration.
