This was Fred's last series and fans of all ages up and down the country get to see him and his close friends take the 1912 traction engine, that Fred lovingly restored over 28 years, around Britain.
This first DVD has the first 6 episodes of the brilliant 12 part series.

Format: DVD
This was Fred's last television series and shows him at his nostalgic best. Along with his friend Alf, Fred takes a journey around the country on his traction engine. The aim was to seek out engineering sites that still provided the mechanical skills which were necessary to make the parts that went into building the likes of Fred's traction engine. All the old skills are demonstrated.

A few problems were encountered along the way but Fred's grit and determination see them through to a pint or two at the end of each day.

Episode two concludes with Fred receiving his MBE at the Palace.

The sereies is a must for any of Fred's fans.

Really interesting DVD. Only minor annoyance is the brass band music playing through most of it.

This Fred's sad farewell, like the others is wonderful. I have to admit that it brought me to tears, especially when his friend said that the M.B.E. was both well deserved and well overdue and then repeated it while polishing the paintwork. I couldn't agree more.

I found this just as interesesting and entertaining as the rest of his video, burt like the other videos it also has bits in from previous videos, which can be annoying when the same things can be on several videos.
