Steam engine demonstration and a ride with a steam tractor
15.09.2019 @ 14:00 - 18:00
We will demonstrate a functional steam engine from 1903. The traction engine drives a large threshing machine, which sorts wheat, grains and completely cleanses it.
The demonstration will take place on Thursday, 12. 9., and Friday, 13. 9., between 9.00 and 12.00 and on Sunday, 15. 9., between 14.00 and 18.00.
Demonstration can be viewed with the purchase of the museum ticket.
On Sunday, September 15th, from 14:00 to 18:00, we also invite you to a ride with a steam powered tractor in Bistra! The steam tractor is a replica of the steam engines used in England around 1860. Model 1 – 4 was used in agriculture, priming, engine drive, mills and towing heavy carts. Its power is about 3 horses at a maximum pressure of 8 bars, with a maximum speed of 4 km per hour.
You can attend the events by purchasing a museum ticket.
