Around two dozen classic tractors – some restored and some works in progress – wound their way through the countryside east of Warwick the weekend before last on the Grainshed Machinery Group’s 2020 ‘Tractor Trek’.
The event was the first of its kind for the group, which combines those with a passion for tractors and old machinery at its base at the historic Freestone grain shed on Freestone Road. The trekkers – many of whom came from outside the region – headed from Freestone to Queen Mary Falls on the Saturday, including a stopover at the Swanfels Pioneer Memorial Park for morning smoko, with an overnight stay at Killarney and then back to Freestone via Swan Creek on the Sunday.
The Grainshed Machinery Group Inc was formed in June 2019 by a group of like-minded old machinery enthusiasts interested in preserving farm machinery, stationery motors and tractors while enjoying the company of the people with similar interests. The group holds regular engine display days at the Grainshed. For information on the Grainshed Machinery Group contact Leo Ryan on 0400 198 070.
