I couldn’t make my mind up. Is he a Tractor Correspondent, or a European Correspondent? Both, I concluded…
Nick’s comment regarding the beauty below is:
‘It‘s been a while since I‘ve been able to photo a tractor - and this one is not all visible - nevertheless I guess not too difficult to identify.’
Judging by the logo, I would guess that AlanR will come back with something like ‘made in Middlesbrough on a Tuesday afternoon in 1965, painted in the colour of the last trolley bus to pass Ayresome Park before the overhead lines were removed, and exported to Holland shortly before the Teesside Docks closed’.
So how come it finished up in Germany?
A few days later, Nick was getting into his stride:
‘This time from Austria - the Wachau region on the Danube is known for its wine, but unvisited by us until now. This rather new tractor is used on one of the local vineyards, where we walked yesterday, then drank more than enough local Grüner Veltliner wine!’
Thanks Nick – you might have made AlanR happy enough to treat us to a coffee tomorrow!
