Record Breaker

It’s official, Steam Traction World’s Christmas caper for 2017 entitled Build a Burrell  is their most watched film on YouTube.

Created by Nick Price Creatives, the festive film for Steam Traction World has now become an eagerly awaited tradition (almost) as much as the John Lewis Christmas advert – that this year features Moz the Monster.

Moz himself makes a cameo appearance in the Steam Traction World film Build a Burrell and to think, Build a Burrell was launched 24 hours before John Lewis’ closely guarded advert, Nick Price Creatives must have had some inside info – or was it just a coincidence?!

The film breaks the record, previously held by Bear and the Hare, Steam Traction Worlds parody to the John Lewis advert back in 2013. Build a Burrell currently has been watched 9,553 times compared to Bear and the Hare’s 9,107.


Well Tweedily deedily dee it’s time for some more festive fun with miniature steam engineers, Steam Traction World.

Each year, around Christmas time, to say thank you for the continued support of customers, friends and family, Steam Traction World offer a uniquely original, some may say masterpiece (most will not), yuletide yarn for your enjoyment. This year is no exception with some familiar faces returning to your screens.

Deedily diddy Dave returns after a triumphant introduction last year and, after whole 12 months of singing lessons for this time around, brings some of his old friends: Bear, Hare, Carrot, Coalaff (a slightly similar-looking character to a Frozen favourite) and the staff at Steam Traction World.

This year has everything (sadly the kitchen sink did not make the final edit): steam, music, singing, dancing, steam, lights, steam (did we mention steam?) and a few slapstick jokes too. No characters were seriously hurt, although Dean did pull a muscle trying the splits. We didn’t ever ask Dean to do the splits!

So fetch a cuppa, a sherry or simply your favourite tipple, sit back and (hopefully) enjoy “Build a Burrell” from Steam Traction World. Please share on social media, comment on YouTube below and get involved to see if “Build a Burrell” can be the best ever Steam Traction World film.
