Old-kit enthusiasts are expected to head to Cheffins’ Cambridge Vintage Sale in considerable numbers on 26 April.

One of the rarest lots is a 1936 Ferguson Brown A Industrial, which is believed to be one of only two in existence. There’s also an original 1948 David Brown Thresherman, which replaced a Fowler steam engine in a Yorkshire threshing business.
