Rumour has it…

…That not too far away a rarely seen Aveling Tractor is getting closer to coming back to life.

Aveling tractor

It’s not just a rumour an Aveling Tractor in Stoke Row has had a fire after the boilerwork at Maskell’s in Bedford. Robert Cox reports a trial steaming before re-assembly was carried out in September. Just the small matter of putting all the bits and pieces back in their right places, bit of a jigsaw without a picture!

New back axle is being made along with new bearings, she can then get back on 4 wheels.
