Goulburn Valley Vintage Tractor and Farm machinery Club Inc Vice President, Des Drum said, “Last year we had a great weekend. More than 100 people turned out, which was great.
“This year, our feature tractor is “David Brown” and feature engine is “Wolseley.” The David Brown Club is also coming so there should be a good display of these tractors.
“Our 800 HP Crossley Engine that we saved from going to scrap, from Radio Australia in Shepparton, has been restored by club members and should be running on the hour, every hour during the weekend as well.
“The event is great for those who have worked on these types of machines in the past and for those who would be interested in seeing how it was done.
“We encourage everyone to come along; it’s always a fun, packed weekend.”
