History

The Dutch Steamroller Association was founded in April 1969. The intention was, and still is, to preserve as much as possible roadrollers, portables and traction engines as a form of Industrial Heritage. The Association promotes also to show the engines in working order. Besides roadrollers who are owned by Roadworks Companies there are also many private owners. Often they have restored their engines themselves. Besides fullscale steamengines several members have scalemodels of steamengines which are operational. In most cases they have built these scalemodels themselve s. The first steamroller that was imported in the Netherlands was Aveling & Porter no 4711 in the year 1901. This steamroller is the model for the logo of the Dutch Steamroller Association.

Our clubmagazine "Op Stoom" gives information about the club, activities of members and news from over the borders etc. four times a year.
