Commercial & Military vehicles

A large number of interesting vehicles were present. But a number had disappeared by mid after noon.

Details to follow once steam sorted

  • (photos to follow later) And a few others trucks besides.


The Tractor display was quite small but the layout made taking photos difficult as exhibit numbers not visible, and packed too tight as usual. The tractors tended to be the common ones with few Unusual exhibits

A selection of the few I did get to follow.

A number of interesting vehicles were in the car and light commercial section at this show.

  • The rarest machine was probably a Buggati racing car.
