Traction Engine

Today I headed over to the Upper Yarra Museum's "Crank Up 2012". The video speaks for itself really, but there was a lovely Aveling and Porter Traction Engine (click on the link to watch it). The Traction engine itself is a cracker, but the display of Stationery Engines was fantastic. The reassuring chug chug chug speaks to a time unlike ours, where high speed whoring noises reflect our frenetic pace of life. So I hope you enjoy the videos. I had a great day and loved the atmosphere.
