A tax based on the «whetted surface area of a boiler.»  How did the English not riot?  Absolutely incredible.

Imagine owning one of those as your daily driver.
«Hey, wanna go grab some take-out?»
«Yeah, gimmie an hour. I gotta stoke my fire and build up steam.»

Re: Landrew0 — Even up to the 1930's the steam lorries were more powerful than diesel/petrol trucks of that era. Also unlike today there was no network of filling stations, and coal was still very common (heating, trains etc..). Steamies were also well suited as tar trucks because the heat from the engine helped keep the tar liquid.

wonder if these lorries could use propane instead of coal or wood .also, in the us we had steam traction engines and trucks ( lorries ). what killed them off was the self starter on the gasoline powered car and diesel trucks ( petrol)

«The fireman puts as much wood as possible into the boiler.» Bollocks — to use a very British expression. The fuel goes into the firebox. Whoever wrote the narrative didn't know much about firing a boiler.

The driver has to sit with his leg outside the cab??? Only in England! Ergonomics was not invented here!

Correction: it was a Flemish inventor, working for the Chinese Emperor, who made the first steam propelled trolley, capable of bringing lumber up a mountain!  His name was father Ferdinand Verbist!  This was around 1672.

This was (would have been) tremendously interesting, but, as usual, piling «foreground» music on top of the narration results in a useless bunch of bidlee-bob

Can a steam wagon pull a traction engine

Over types i.e. Foden were disadevantaged in every respect, it seems to me. They were obsolete when they were new! Basically a traction engine or road roller with a different body on it. Junk!

Fantastic video, this is what it was all about, none of the namby pamby cap made these days. EMP strike I want the oldest vehicle possible with no electronics in it. Cos your new car will just stop, when it's electronics get zapped.

I don't think that USA used steam trucks/lorries were used
I think we went straight from gas to diesel
