Steam traction engines on TV?

by Richard Backus

Steam traction engines on TV? Could be, at least if the desires of an independent British programming company come to fruition. I've been approached before by would-be TV producers expressing interest in building a show around the subject of old farm equipment, but the few who have contacted me in years past seemed intent on trying to apply the sort of story line used in popular shows like Jesse James' "Monster Garage" to vintage farm equipment. Not much of a fit, if you ask me.
