Boxing day traction engines [Wednesday 28th December 2016 at 6:46 pm]

Horsham has a sort-of traditional boxing day steam up, where a collection of traction engines appear in the Carfax...













This one was merrily puffing away, turning a dynamo at the front to power a set of lights.






There's also some other steam-powered vehicles: a steam bus (occasionally seen doing tours around the town centre)...





...along with a steam tanker...




And to round things off, a few other classic vehicles:








There were also a pair of old motorbikes - one of which a chap pedalled furiously to start, while the other required push starting. The rider tried to start it by rolling down the Carfax, but couldn't quite get enough speed... so he then reappeared being towed behind an old jeep!
