Used during the late 18th century, a traction engine is a common type of engine seen in rail history. As such, models and replicas are popular amongst children, collectors, and train enthusiasts alike.

In addition to trains, traction engines were common on farms and on roads as well. Traction engines used as steam rollers helped build roads around the country, and the general purpose engine also acted as a mobile power plant. Find models and toys from top brands like Mamod and Burrell.
