Default Horse & Steam Ploughing at York in UK

Published on Sep 10, 2016
I ended up back in my car about 4pm and sat a few minutes feeling rather odd and
bemused with a rather strange feeling of euphorea that I could not quite understand.
Then the more I thought about it .. I had just experienced the nearest thing possible
to time travel... for 6 hours I had not been in 2016 and it had been one of the most
enjoyable days ever because these machines I had witnessed had not been "exhibits"
they were ALL doing their work and I doubt I will ever see so many of these wonderful
engines together again, all actually working as they were built to and it will stay with
me for ever. VIVA TIME TRAVEL.

Thanks for posting the great video! I have never seen implements pulled by cables like that. Was that common in the UK? If the field were very long it seems that would be a huge PITA! A lot of cable to spool out!! Again thanks for posting!!

Hi,
Yes the 2 ploughs featured were the most common The roundabout one and the tipping with plough blades at each end.
With the smaller fields and damp ground a Steam engine actually pulling a plough was not the norm, this came with the introduction of the smaller tractor
There are photos and a nice article about the event in this months Old Glory Magazine.
It certainly was a very interesting and enjoyable day.
