Sneak Peep inside:

Sneek peek inside Victoria's Busy Day

Victoria was a shiny green traction engine, with two large back wheels and two smaller wheels at the front. She had three brass bands around her boiler and a tall, elegant, black chimney with a gleaming brass top.

She lived with Mr. Seward and his other traction engines in the small town of Torton.

Mr. Seward and his engineer, George, would steam her from farm to farm helping with the harvest. When the harvest was finished, Victoria would pull wagons stacked high with all sorts of things, from bricks, gravel, soil and tar, to even furniture, making deliveries all over the place.

Victoria was a very hard working engine and enjoyed having fun too. While puffing through the villages and towns, she would see how many people would jump when she gave a quick “Peep, peep!” on her whistle.
