What’s at the show?
The big steamers are always a wonderful sight. From the huge Showman’s Engine the Duke of Rutland, to the humble Steam Roller, these machines changed the industrial world and started new revolutions in agriculture and industry when they were made small enough to be mobile.
Like their full sized brothers, the miniature steam engines are a work of industrial art. The ones on show at Morton range in size from correct working models in our model tent up to the ride on 3” and 4” scale models that can be seen whizzing around the showground.
Morton has for many years been a favourite of the vintage agricultural tractor owners. We start off with small Horticultural machines such as the Allen and work our way up to the big International machines giving us a wide range of tractors on display.
Stationary engines have been used for various roles around farms and industry. Our displays will show engines pumping water, generating electricity, powering a mobile forge and many other demonstrations.
Vintage Cars & Bikes
At Morton we try to keep a vintage feel to the displays and the cars and bikes on display range from the early 1920’s and include many household names from the 1950’s and 60’s.
Morton has gaining a reputation for Vintage Commercial vehicles and this part of our display has been growing rapidly over the last two years. Morton has been featured by the ERF magazine and this year also sees support from Scammell. As well as a range of lorries and vans we also have the oldest Delaine Bus still in service.
