Classic Plant & Machinery  |  Vol.12 No.6  


The wet and gale force windy weather has subsided for the moment, perhaps to catch its breath before another major onslaught. Only time will tell on that one. Despite that, and the floods and power cuts over the festive period, I’m pleased to report that the four major tractor road
runs in the UK came through it all very well. In fact, I spotted a raft of industrial tractors amongst the machines at the events I attended. I had planned to be at the Larling Angel Road Run, near Snetterton, Norfolk, on Boxing Day. However the weather forecast for that area was for
heavy fog and as I needed to set off at 5am to get there I was persuaded to give it a miss and take in the local Six Bells Road Run instead. I gather the fog missed the Larling area and although the day was rather overcast, the 176 tractors and drivers had a wonderful time. In addition the
event raised a good amount for charity. As for the excellent Boxing Day Six Bells Road Run from Cross In Hand to Chiddingly and back, it attracted a record entry of some 76 tractors. This is a ten-mile run planned by route organiser, Brian Tompsett. The route was updated this year as there are hundreds of ways to get to the popular inn where a stop is made and where the tractors and operators were, as usual,
made very welcome. After the stop everybody travelled on to their various destinations, with quite a few travelling back to Cross In Hand,
where more drinks and mince pies were available. The weather was generally good, although it was wet underfoot in most places. In Cheshire, the local National Vintage Tractor and Engine Club (NVTEC) branch held a run between Christmas and the New Year with 121
machines taking part. The event was well organised and went down a treat. Amazingly, some 180 people sat down for the late lunch after the run and it just shows how strong the movement is in those parts.
The New Year’s Day Run in Somerset went well too, as did other events.
Construction, mining, road building, where would we be now without the pioneering development of industrial machinery from the likes of Bucyrus, Caterpillar, JCB, and many other firms, including the specialist conversion companies that saw the need and did the deed.
