Circus (Page Three)

The first circuses date back to Ancient Rome, circus being the Latin word for circle.

European circuses traditionally have used animals, such as horses and elephants, whereas Chinese and African circuses which feature more acrobatic acts.

Circuses and traveling fairs have always needed transportation as a massive amount of equipment must be transported from town to town for each performance.

In the U.S.A., where massive distances are involved special railway trains have been used, but in Europe road transport is well suited.

This started with horse and carts, growing to long trains of brightly coloured trucks, caravans and lorries in many liveries and styles making them perfect for model collectors.
