Harold Bonnett was captivated at an early age by the sound and sight of engines passing through his village in Lincolnshire. He subsequently joined the Great Northern Railway and worked for the railway all his life. But his real love was the steam plough and he founded the Club in 1966.
Joe Challis first drove an engine at the age of nine and the club was pleased to celebrate his 90th birthday on the footplate. Joe led a steam ploughing gang in the 1930s. He was an enthusiastic member of the club and provided much help and advice.
