Chris, Leave the harbour and head up the dual carriageway towards Belfast for about 1.5mile, go past Ford car showroom, take next road right (A36) for Ballymena, keep on that road for about 17 miles and your in Ballymena, the show should be signposted from the main roundabout as you enter Ballymena....

RE: Glens road run Co Antrim

Thanks for posting this Neville, it was too good of an opportunity to miss getting a photo of this, but trust me not to have my camera with me that day. My unrestored 880 looks out of place amongst the rest of these finely restored selectamatics. That was my first time on the Glens road run as it ha...

Dont worry about parking for the wagon, there is security on at the showgrounds from the Thursday so it would be safe enough sitting there.

Hi guys, good news about the transport a very generous gesture by stg. I'll try and help with the accomodation as I am quite close to the showground. Firstly, are you's bringing a car/jeep or would you be depending on a taxi or a generous db club member from ni to ferry you to your accomodation. The...

The show is on 16th and 17th July at Ballymena Showgrounds. Hopefully we'll get good weather this year the last few years has always been wet but luckily the showgrounds has plenty of hard standing so its never too bad underfoot.

Chris, the club will be made most welcome when you come over and it would be a unique opportunity for many to see the last tractor over here. The handiest ferry for you's to get would probably be the overnight boat from Birkenhead to Belfast or from Fleetwood to Larne but them routes would probably ...

RE: Transportation for latest purchase.

George Alexander from the Derry area brought home my hurricane harvester and he has also brought tractors over for other people I know. A decent man to deal with and not too hard on the wallet either. I'll PM you his number if you want it.
