Until the arrival of dedicated steam-powered haulage, goods were transported by rail, water or in trailers towed behind traction engines. With the relaxation of previously stringent legislation, the use of steam powered lorries and wagons flourished in the early twentieth century.

Filmed at the annual Fairford Steam Rally, the Great Dorset Steam Fair and the Bluebell Railway Vintage Vehicle event, this Steam Lorries DVD features a host of the finest steam haulage vehicles in preservation in the UK today including a Yorkshire Patent Steam Wagon, a Foden bus conversion, an early 3 ton Foden wagon, several steam tractor conversions, a Foden tanker, a unique steam light delivery van and the ever popular Sentinel S4 and Super Sentinel wagons.
