Toronto is well known for it's steamcycles, which puff up and down our streets in a great cloud of white fluffy smoke. They are a wonder to behold, and well worth visiting Toronto for. I've collected six of my favourites here.
First is the Royal Strike of Roncesvalles.
The Royal Strike of Roncesvalles
Weight: 43 tons
Height: 25.3 feet
Operational range: 12 miles (98 miles downhill)
Maximum speed: 30 mph (55 mph downhill)
Engine: Trevithick 1800
Bane of bicycles, the Royal Strike rumbles along the avenue on an irregular basis. A herald will sometimes run out front, to warn people of its impending passing.
In winter it's used to crush a path through the snow.
