Old Iron Opens the Door to New Friends

People are at the heart of the old iron hobby, as Josephine Roberts explains.

After an afternoon of vehicle spotting at the show, a gentle stroll along the promenade in Llandudno took us past one tractor that was actually out working for a living – an amphibious Talus T91. This tractor was attached to the Llandudno Lifeboat and was ready to launch from the beach at a moment’s notice. This superb, tank-like machine makes easy work of the steep shingle beach at the Victorian seaside town and is built by Clayton Engineering, Knighton, Wales. It’s reassuring to know that we do still make some amazing machines in this country
