Ransomes is the theme of this year’s Eastern Counties Vintage Tractor Show at the Royal Norfolk Showground, Norwich, on March 29 and 30.
Now in its third year, the spectacular event is organised by a group of East Anglian enthusiasts led by Suffolk collector, Roger Desborough. It is recognised for its very high standard of exhibits, including plant, with around some 700 on display.
Roger said: “We intend to celebrate Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies, and invite entries on this topic. Not just the obvious items, such as ploughs and cultivators, but also everything else from a Ransomes steam traction engine to the later harvesting machinery. I’d particularly like to get a Cavalier combine and a Hunter beet machine.”
Tractors are at the heart of the event with magnificent displays of veteran, vintage, classic and modern machines, including a number of quality club stands including the local branch of the Ford and Fordson Association, Blue Force, Ferguson Club, Starting Handle Club, NVTEC East Anglia Group and many others.
