The photos taken in 1994 show grass cutting using a Fordson N tractor of 1944. The finger-bar mower had just been acquired. Due to the war, the tractor is fitted with narrow wheel arches to save metal, and a calorimeter above the radiator, to indicate the temperature at which it could be switched from petrol to paraffin, a cheaper fuel.

Work on the Fordson E27N tractor is progressing, with the fuel problems sorted by a replacement carburettor. It has had a run outside on paraffin for the first time. Meanwhile the railway is still quiet, awaiting the easing of restrictions.

Another before and after photo this week. The Chesterfield Sewage Works man-rider photographed in 2005, when most of the woodwork had rotted with the weather. Forward to 2018, and it now boasts new woodwork and a repaint. Currently stored under cover, it is safe from the elements.

Another picture from 2015 shows the Allis Chalmers Model B row-crop tractor having a run out. The second picture was taken in 1989 when the tractor had just arrived. It had been dismantled by the previous owner, but the engine and chassis had been overhauled, and it only took a day to re-assemble the bodywork and get it running.
