These Are Not Tractor Seats
We went to Honiton Hill Rally. It's an annual meeting of steam and agricultural machinery enthusiasts and much more. Oddly, for such a large event it lacks its own web site. There were dozens of working traction engines, steam rollers, classic cars, motorcycles, military vehicles and marquees containing everything from corgi model cars to a bar.
Quite a few exhibitors turned up with their collections, from the man with hundreds of Dinky cars (all in Post Office livery) to the collection of
tractor agricultural machinery seats. The collector in question was quite particular that these are not tractor seats.
The best moment was, I think, when all 40 or 50 steam traction engines all blew their whistles at the same time.

A Fowler ploughing engine, built 1872. These used to be used in pairs and would winch the agricultural implement across the field between them.
