What We Talk About

Traction Talk is a thriving and growing community we have around 1,000 active members and a library of over 50,000 posts featuring many hundreds of pictures. Our members come from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, North America, South America, Germany, Holland and a few more besides!

We have a couple of get-together's each year with the main one being held at the Great Dorset Steam Fair in August/September.

We feature pictures and discussion on all types of engines including, General Purpose Engines, Showmans Engines, Steam Rollers, Steam Lorries and historic pictures of engines during their working life.

Miniature Steam

If you are interested in building miniature traction engines we have a thriving model forum, where you can discuss building, buying and running minature engines:

Steam Rallies

We have a regularly updated list of road steam events taking place across the world and a calendar of events.

Also throughout the summer season we have rally reports supplied by members - Traction Talk is the first place to learn about what's going on in the rally scene.

Not Just Steam

In addition we have several other forums dedicated to non-steam topics:

Items For Sale and Wanted
Jokes and Off Topic Discussions
