    Any Dutch TFF members

    I am trying to find a gearbox for my Holder tractor. Have found a potential one unfortunately its in Holland at Mariahout with a company called De Smalspoorman. Just wondered if any Dutch TFF members know anything about them. I am finding it difficult to even contact them.

    Any French farmers near Picardie. Been looking for one of these balers for a while but for some reason they only ever have been bought by the French. Is it something particularly wierd with French farmers.

    Liverpool Giants

    Not often impressed but went to see the Giants in Liverpool this afternoon and for the Heath Robinson engineering the puppet mechanics where brilliant. Only downside was the size of the crowds which made it quite difficult to see at times.
