Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club

0413 848 620||http://www.melbournesteam.com.au/

The Melbourne Steam Traction Engine club was established 50 years ago with the aim of preserving the last of the road steam vehicles. It quickly expanded its scope to include a wide range of vintage machinery.

The club has about 160 members sharing a common interest in vintage machinery. Many of the items the club has preserved are too large to be collected by private individuals or require too many resources,financially or physically. With team work the club has been able to save them and present them to the public. Today the club’s museum, features examples of the mechanical heritage that brought in our farm land, powered industry, generated our electricity, propelled our ships, worked our mines, ran our farms and built our roads.

There is a great depth of knowledge and a wide variety of skills shared among the membership.

There are no paid employees and the museum and all its projects are run using the volunteer labour of members.
