Steam powered moving truck travels 265 miles

Dec 21, 2012 by

In July 2012 Bishop’s Move based in Chessington, Surrey, UK drove? a 1929 Foden Model HH steam wagon from Surrey to Cornwall, UK.

It is equipped and painted as a “truck” or Lorry would have been at the time. They traveled 265 miles at approx 15 mph. It runs on coal and water.

Would you say this is a green transport vehicle? The coal produces waste. But so does the coal plant that generates electricity for your hybrid or electric vehicle.
