A passer-by captured on video a steam engines driving along Thorpe Road with a large amount of traffic queuing up behind it.
The historic vehicle was making its way to the Strumpshaw Steam Engine Rally which is running throughout the Bank Holiday weekend and will attract around 4,000 visitors.
Mike Curtis, organiser of the event, said the steam engines travelling through Norwich were local to Norfolk.
'They can only travelling at between 7 and 10mph so those ones in a Norwich today would have been travelling from either Wymondham or north Norfolk,' he said. 'We have engines coming from all over the country but they would be transported on a low loader.
