Steam Power

My paternal grandfather was a wagon driver. Yes like a truck, but powered by horses or bullocks. Later he progressed to traction engines. Here is his traction engine (but I don't think he is driving it) bringing logs into Daniell's Mill in Masterton. The photo is taken in the Rangitumau area north of Masterton. Four trailers ! I wonder if this makes it the original "Road Train"?
