Historic Muckleford Railway Station sets the scene for this weekend’s Mucklefest Vintage Machinery Rally.
The annual festival has been running for over a decade now and is a firm favourite on the calendars of those who appreciate vintage machines.
Among them is Walmer’s Eddie Harvey, a member of the organising committee who loves few things better than collecting vintage machines – both stationary and running.
He’ll be bringing a few of his favs along to this weekend’s two-day fest, including his very collectable vintage Chevrolet sedan and his treasured 1949 Fordson tractor.
They’ll be among the large lineup of vintage and rare tractors, trucks and cars with a wide assortment of yesteryear farm machinery and stationary engines also on display at the event, which sprawls itself out over the Dave Bennett Reserve alongside the photogenic little Muckleford Railway Station.
