Picture of Traction engine from Steam

Steam Traction engine.

More information on this Steam:

Seen in '95 is this rare old steam driven traction engine seemingly missing a few parts. I wonder where the chimney had gone! Hopefully this went on to be fully renovated.

This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Steam above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Traction engine would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Steam Traction engine, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Traction engine, and similar old Steams, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
