Steam Traction on the Road

About the Author

Anthony Burton is a professional writer who has specialised in industrial and transport history. Among his many books on the subject are a biography of the pioneer of steam transport, Richard Trevithick, and an account of a journey in search of all types of steam, Steaming Through Britain. He has also worked on many TV documentaries, including a ninety-minute film on the Great Dorset Steam Fair, which he wrote and presented for Channel 4. In his spare time he helps maintain and run a stationary steam engine in a former woollen mill.


"I found the early years of development fascinating as Burton not only recounts facts and figures, but explains the mechanical differences in the evolution of traction engines as well as their operation. The description of what it took to fire up a Stanley Steamer was quite detailed and to my mind, a tad daunting -- but then again, we're used to just turning a key."--Historical Miniatures Gaming Society
