Can you imagine driving a steam engine for five days from Winton to Timaru?

The event will see 500 vehicles on display, at Phar Lap Raceway at Timaru, aiming to fundraise​ $500,000 for the South Canterbury Traction Engine Club.

One of the event organisers Gordon Handy joined Rural Exchange to tell us more about the unique machines that will be on display.
