Like buses you see one and another is sure to come along soon.
Unlike buses, however, the annual tractor run at Prickwillow is where not only do you see another but another and another and then, for good measure, another.
This year’s event saw the road brimming with glimpses of a by gone era as tractors of all shapes and sizes eased their way from Prickwillow Engine Museum into the countryside.
The convoy weaved their way along the Great Fen Road and Hasse Road to the A142 and off to Isleham and Soham before heading back, after a three to four journey, to the museum.
A museum spokesman said: “Thanks to all the owners, drivers and public that turned up and made the event a great success.”

And as the drivers enjoyed tea and coffee and refreshments on their return the planning of next year’s event was already under way.
On May 12 the museum turns its attention to a different form of transport as it hosts its sixth annual motorcycle shows.
