Annual Rally Countdown #2

For the past few years we have promoted a theme at the Annual Rally to highlight a particular make or style of machine. This year we have chosen Lawn Edgers and Electric Mowers. 


From past experience we know that members attending the event will do their best to bring out the unusual and exotic to show alongside the regular exhibits. To get everyone in the mood, here's an example of each. The machine on the left is a Ransomes electric mower from the 1920s and the machine on the right is a Ransomes lawn edger from the same period.

Ransomes on BBC's Great British Railway Journeys
