Re: ww1 military convuy

Hmmmmmmm. I like the photo, but I can't get the video to play, says an error occurred.

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.

Re: ww1 military convuy

Also worked fine for me. Lot of great shots there, like the two steamers hooked together in the front pulling that tank up the hill with a steam pusher behind. Those re-enactors are really taking this seriously. Lot of good running equipment there. If I was those poor guys marching in the midst of all this (11:16) think I would have had my gas mask on with all the smoke.

Joe, switch to Full View mode temporarily and try the video. If you are using IE there is a security setting that may need to be changed to view videos on here in Classic View mode.

Re: ww1 military convuy

Today, I was able to see the video. Wonderful to see all the vintage equipment in working order. I was pleasantly surprised that the marching soldiers were carrying rifles. I had thought with Britain's draconian gun control laws, that no one had rifles to carry. I have personally seen steam powered machines at local shows, but never that many all at once and never in a convoy down the streets. It must have been a marvel to watch.

Re: ww1 military convuy

The rifles are likely non functioning replicas. Still, it is neat to see. I am a member of a collector's club, several members have operational steam tractors that are fascinating. Talk about torque

Talk about torque is right! The one tractor show I attend has a saw mill powered by a steam tractor through a leather belt. That saw cuts thru 24 in diameter logs like butter and the engine doesn't even notice the load.

Really good video Forkz, thanks. My Grandson and I both enjoyed watching it.

Amazing machines considering everybody else was still riding horses.
