Default Newark Tractor and Heritage show

Gentlemen,

I took a neighbour friend to the above show yesterday, apart from being very cold the weather was dry and most of the exhibits were inside sheds, a very good interesting show.
I didnt take my camera but took some pictures with my phone.

Yes it was rather chilly Martin! Not as bad as the first time I exhibited an engine there though, it was dense freezing fog all weekend and I was the only person actually running an engine outside. I had the whole of one of those plots all to myself, right outside the Rare Breeds section which must say something about me! Then a few other engine folk spotted me (Peter Keating was very keen to join in, "engines should be outside and actually running" was his take on it ) and the following year there were several of us outside and it has grown in numbers each year, even though tractor exhibits appear to have declined slightly. A lack of available fencing was the biggest issue but we overcame that eventually. Not 'bragging' but I like to think that Brian Grimshaw and myself had some input into promoting it as it wasn't a popular decision with the 'powers that be' initially until we had a chat with them, there is now a section on the entry form for 'outside' engines and a Steward!

Pete.

Stationary engines, stationary in a barn, why ?
But at least I now know there is a colour even worse than my Wolseley used to be

It was a solid structure, what more did you want

Neil,
Barn, isn't that where we find them initially.

You might, mine came from came from a garden shed beside a canal

I don't get the idea of displaying a non running engine

Neil.

But that is how they have been displayed at Newark (and Tractor World at Malvern) for many years Neil, they are judged and awarded trophies exactly the same as the tractors/commercials/military/horticultural exhibits. Not my type of show really which is why myself and Brian (although he has left the hobby now) asked about some outside space to run them and so far it seems a popular addition. Originally I exhibited milking machinery, I had a Lister or a Wolseley WD milking set etc running outside a marquee containing dairy related displays submitted by collectors from around the UK, the idea being that the sound of my engine would draw punters to the inside display. This worked for just one year, the marquee was then deemed too expensive and was ditched so I joined the other couple (at that time) of outside engines and the dairy displays were moved to the Rare Breeds animal sheds where they are still. It all works well for everyone now, it is a good event to end the main rallying season with and so far we have been fortunate enough to have had decent dry but cool weather.

Pete.

So it works for some, not for others.
I remain with the others i'm afraid.
