Seconded. An excellent line up in great condition. I wonder what condition they are all in now, if they have not been scrapped. They may all be in existence.

Brilliant photos also - look at the extra wide 1690T mirror arms !

Beautiful lineup.

What may have become of them now doesn't really bear thinking about, I'm sure some will have been melted down.

Hello, I remember all these tractors and worked on most of them when I was at DB Retail Wigginton. The two 1412's were part of a batch of German spec machines that came through after the 90 series were launched. They had been stood at Meltham unsold for quite some time. We changed all the German decals for English ones and sold them out at a very good price, Mike Franks at Stittenham got one of them too, I think there were 6 or 7 in total. Both these tractors in your pictures still exist and are local to you, scroll down the members photos section and there are pictures of them on a thread titled "1412".

I remember delivering one of the 1690t's by road and driving a County 1164 that was px'ed back to Wigginton.

Happy days, Roger Drury was a very interesting man and a very accomplished engineer.
