    I’ve just joined the group and was browsing back through the June copy of the Cultivator and noticed a picture from Derek Bright of a steam powered crawler. I was then reminded of a machine I saw some years ago at a steam fair in Godshill on the outskirts of the New Forest. I have shared it here but I’m sure this looks like the same machine. The picture I took in August 1986….. Do wonder if it still exists ??


    I would guess it was a one off made by an enthusiast.


    This tractor was built by a chap called Alan Pickering back in 1985. He had no interest in the Ransomes MG tractors but had the steam engine and considered it a suitable chassis and drive system to mount everything on. There is an article on this in the June 1986 Engineering in Miniature magazine.
