The National Traction Engine Trust

Back in 2012 we featured the image below, with an appeal for more information.

The bits we did know was that it was a Savage built engine, named 'Island Chief' and was owned by Simons & Teago who had winter quarters in Caenarvon - hence the engines name.

More recently we have been contacted by the Grandaughter of a Teago, who is currently researching her family history tree.

Any further information on this particular machine would be most welcome.
