But of course, they didn't known that Mr. Bonnet is no ordinary steamroller driver , but a steamroller connoisseur, a protector of a piece of transport that is otherwise in danger of joining its absolescent friends the tram, the trolley bus and the steam locomotive. Yesterday, he was completing a 26-mile journeys he has been making from Sabey's gravel pits, West Drayton, Middlesex, to his home in Bledlow Ridge, Bucks, where he keeps both this steamroller and another he bought last year.
