Original pyrography artwork of Fowler steam ploughing engine "Dale".

This is "Dale", a ploughing engine built by John Fowler & co (Leeds) Ltd in 1918. The engine is a regular visitor to the steam shows around Yorkshire, and I took the original photograph at the Driffield Steam Show in 2016. Ploughing engines, as most of us know, worked in pairs. Postioned at opposite sides of the field, the plough would have been hauled across the ground on a steel wire by one engine, then turned around before being hauled back by the other machine. While laborious by modern standards, it was far quicker than the horse-drawn method it replaced. Using a plough-set of 5 blades, a steam engine could plough about 20 acres in a day, compared to just one acre with a single horse-drawn plough.
