I have worked in the UK on and off since 1998, I pass by the Kempton Water Works where the largest operating steam engine resides every day I am there. I never knew or realized it was there until 2 days before I left the last time I was in the UK, which was about 2 years ago. It is on my To Do list my next trip over. It is located in Sunbury-On-Thames which is Southwest of London. The link to their website is below.

I am wondering how many here can name the tractors in order, top to bottom?   I can get a few, less than half, in the central USA have seen maybe half dozen european tractors.

Two things, can you imagine a display of the original special tools and pullers for even two or three of these tractors?   Home brew note:  picture no.2, the early Mogul tractor by IHC, International Harvestor, underneath is a very home built starting unit with friction wheel, and battery so one doesn't have to grunt on that big flywheel.  What I find interesting is the similarity yet difference between the US built and Euro built models.   Picture 14, the grey Fordson as built for the US market in the 20s, then the blue Fordson next down that if I recall was built in the US and shipped to England during WWII in attempt to boost food production.   Very diverse and intersting group of machinery, thanks for posting.

I have actually seen a Porsche tractor, about half that size, built when the manufacturers were making and selling anything to stay afloat.   How about a Lamborghini tractor?
