    Steam powered military trucks

    This is pretty awesome. It's the Great Dorset Steam Fair WW1 Commemorative Convoy. I highly suggest you click over to YouTube and read the description, the gentleman that filmed it gives some more detail about the vehicles there. There are also a lot of other cool films from the Great Dorset Steam Fair.

    That was pretty neat. It looks to me like they probably didn't have many flat tires back in WWI.

    I know way more WWII history than WWI history and would have never thought about using steam power in battle but I guess they used what the had at the time. I could not even imagine the enemy coming over he top of a hill and you had to wait for the boiler to warm up.

    That was really great, thanks for posting. Those old steam engines are fascinating to watch.

    On a side note, I recently watched a segment on the Science channel's "How It's Made" program where they showed the building of a current steam engine of a radial design that apparently is in use today. Maybe nothing new but was new to me.
