Following on from the highly successful Saffron Walden Crank Up last year, entries are already being received for the 2016 Event.
The first two Steam entries are as follows:
Mike Dyson with Garrett 4CD Tractor No.33296 ‘Adventurer’. This engine was new to the Ministry of Munitions 1918, and in recent years has taken on the guise of an engine commandeered for Ministry use during the Great War. As ever it is expected that ‘Adventurer’ will travel in by road from its home base in Haddenham, passing through the centre of Cambridge en route to Saffron Walden
Peter Richardson will be bringing his Foden ‘D’ Type Tractor ‘Perseverance’. This engine has long resided in East Anglia, formerly being part of the late Edgar Shone’s ‘Crown Steam Haulage’ fleet, a legend still proudly proclaimed on the cab sides. This is another engine likely to travel in by road.
That’s all for this update, nearer the time of the Crank Up we will endeavour to inform you all of the engines traveling in under their own power so as you can keep an eye out for them along the road
