Old Glory - The Collectors Series

A Detailed Survey of Road and Agricultural Steam in Pictures

Old Glory - The Collectors Series

The steam traction engine is just one iteration of road steam power and this series looks in great detail at the different types of equipment and their manufacturers. The first issue covered Showmans' Road Locomotives and this was followed by six editions focused on Traction Engines and four editions on Steam Rollers. The series has recently turned to reviewing Steam Wagons. Back numbers are still available on most issues (scroll down the page to view all the single issues available).

Future subjects will include Road Locomotives, Steam Lorries, Portable Engines and Ploughing Engines, with a further volume on Showmans' Engines to come.

Edited by Old Glory editor Peter Love, these Collectors' volumes lean heavily on Peter's father's collection of black and white photographs which show many fascinating views of these machines in their working days. These are then contrasted with pictures of the engines as they are today, as seen on the rally fields, at least as far as those that have survived are concerned. Where this is the case, we sometimes see the engines rusting away before being saved and often, there are views of the same engines in their early preservation days, these views also making a stark contrast with what we see today.

In many cases, however, the engines were lost to the scrapman, including some that surprisingly survived late into the day only to succumb and escape the preservationists' hands. As well as the early black and white pictures there is plenty of colour too, and each manufacturer's potted history is included for good measure.

A highly collectable series for all enthusiasts of road and agricultural steam.
