    • "Take a ride through Enniskillen aboard Maeve - a 1918 Showmans Steam Tractor which was initially used as a threshing machine in Norfolk" - BBC website.

  3. Maeve - view here.
    • "It was commandeered by the Ministry of Munitions during the Second World War and saw service in France towing guns for 4 years. It then received a new lease of life travelling around England with various funfairs. It has been restored to its former glory by Finn Lynch from Dundalk who now attends many steam rally events in Ireland where Maeve remains a star attraction. It has also inspired many Meccano modellers to build their own traction engines." - BBC Website
