Each year, we arrange with several places throughout the country for the opportunity to drive or steer a traction engine or steam roller in the safety of private ground without the public being present. Those of you who have been on previous days will know how much fun it is.
NOTICE (Driving Days 2021)Due to the current lockdown we cannot be certain whether the 2021 driving days can go ahead.
After consultation with the driving day organisers, we have decided to review the situation in March, and if they can go ahead, details will be published in the April edition of Raising Steam.
