  • 100 Working exhibits, models, Caravans etc

A range of Dealer and trade stands for tractor parts and spare are also present.

2011 EventEdit

The display of International Harvester Titans that were assembled was a sight to see with them snaking off into the distance. Several other pre 1930 pararie tractors that had been assembled for the event also made a stunning sight in the morning sunshine.

The event was hit by bad weather on the Sunday with a couple of down pours that sent a lot of visitors heading for home mid afternon and exhibitors following from 4 o'clock as the rain set in.

Displays of tractors too close to the roadway edge was yet again a H&S issue when trying to photograph the exhibits and dodge the impatient drivers in vehicles leaving the event !! The club stands areas had also crammed too many into the space infront of there marques.

Big Bud 650-50 at Newby 2010 - IMG 8973

The biggest tractor at the show - a Big Bud which made the Ford FW-30 of last year look small

The pre 1930 tractors again saw a number of rare examples on display with a special feature this year of Lend Lease tractors and Bamford as the featured stationary engine model for the year.

An unusual tractor for the younger generation was the appearance by the Big Bud 650/50 one of the biggest tractors in the country.

The site layout was rearanged from the previous two years and in general was better with the FFA and Ferguson club stands spreading out more which was a lot better for getting round the tractors.


Catering was vastly improved from the 2009 effort, with more variety and lower prices. With the traditional selection of Burger vans and Fish and chips.

Brian Smith hosted his 'Threshermens Reunion' event at this years show, in the Beer tent (an addition for 2010).

2009 EventEdit

Fairbanks-Morse tractor of 1910 at Newby 09 - IMG 2177

The rare 1910 Fairbanks Morse tractor

The Event featured a good range of Pre 1930 tractors, including the Richard Hornsby & Sons Ackroyd oil engine tractor from 1896. The oldest working internal combustion engined tractor in the UK (& probably the world).

The Ford and Ferguson Association had their Marque on site and put on a good display of Ford and Fordsons. (Just packed too tight when you have park land of several 100 acres to used).

Another featured make was John Deere with probably the biggest collection of JD green tractors this year.

The Marshall Tractor Club gathered a large number of there Field Marshall tractors together for the event.

And in the Red and grey corner the Ferguson Tractor Club had a selection of tractors from a Ferguson-Brown through to a Massey Ferguson 1130. (Again packed too tight and fenced in to restrict viewing) !! So very few Photos will appear on here of Fergies at this event.

Very few of the commercials and Cars turned up due to the weather on the Saturday. The Ring parade of tractors was understandably cancelled due to the water logged state of the ground. It was drying up nicely by the afternoon, so dependant on overnight rain it may have been possible to run the parades on the Sunday. (The Author was only present on Saturday)


A common theme from talking to people was very poor compared to other events (range (1 tent) & high prices being the concern expressed).
