National Traction Engine Trust

What is the NTET? The NTET’s official motto is ‘Preserving Our Heritage with Steam on the Road’. An every day translation is ‘Taking History Forward, Safely’. Formerly established in 1954 as the National Traction Club, the now National Traction Engine Trust has over 3,500 members consisting of owners, enthusiasts and event organisers of all ages and gender in over 20 countries world wide. The NTET is held in high esteem for its work relating to driver training, event safety seminars, technical support to owners and event organisers and for its Steam Apprentice Club. The NTET acts as the umbrella organisation for the Steam Traction movement with affiliations held over 30 organisations in the UK and world wide including the Road Locomotive Society, the Road Roller Association and many regional Clubs and Associations. To ensure that road steam has a voice in the affairs of Government the NTET is affiliated to the federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs. World-wide membership is active in Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, France, Sweden, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. The signs are that interest in membership is growing in many other countries also.
