A North Yorkshire castle is holding its first traction engine rally in almost 40 years, celebrating a bygone age of steam-powered locomotion.
Visitors have the chance to view dozens of large traction engines, previously used to move loads over short distances and plow fields, during the three-day event at Castle Howard.
Other vehicles have also been displayed at the rally including vintage cars, trucks, tractors and miniature traction engines in memory of a golden age of industry and travel.
Pictures show traction engines standing in lines, dwarfing men and small children, as well as lines of other vehicles at the event.
Among attendees was Conservative MP Robert Goodwill, Minister of State for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, who has taken his traction engine to the rally.
Guests to the show have taken to twitter to express their excitement, with one saying everyone jumped each time a locomotive blew its whistle.
Another said a member of their group kept pointing at each traction engine they saw, saying 'another one!'.
Traction engines began to disappear from Britain after the 1920s when other forms of transport became more economical.
