Saturday and Sunday 5th and 6th August. West Somerset Railway Steam Rally. A really good day out. Davey, the tractor, will be available  for children to sit on. Also train rides and lots to see.


The three story books will be available for purchase on the stand. Look for the banner.

Please note children can sit on Davey, but only  if supervised by ab accompanying adult.  Davey will be immobilized and wheels chocked. The starter will be disconnected.


The weather forecast is favorable, mostly sunshine with small risk of a shower.

A great day out for school holidays.




Reader Feedback

Hi Alan,
           Just a thankyou note for all your work in sending the books (to Australia) etc. They arrived a couple of weeks ago though haven’t had a chance to read them to all the grand kids yet. More inside time when the weather gets colder. If you ever bring out more Davey books please let me know. I’ll always be  David Brown fan for sure.
Thanks again for your help, Cheers, David J.


"Davey to the Rescue"

I like this story even more than Waking up Davey. The expressions on the tractors are so convincing.

Lots to see in the illustrations.


"Uncle Humphrey" meets Davey again

Davey and Gipsy  went to the Lynmouth Classic Car event on 11th July.2017.

A lovely setting and a sunny but blustery day. A real pleasure to see "UNcle Humphrey", Davey's original owner there and meeting his Davey again. He bought the tractor new in 1954. See the lovely picture of him with the tractor. It is always a pleasure to see him and I hope he enjoyed the whole event. Lynmouth is such a dramatic setting for any public event.

 Woody Bay Steam Railway Gala 26 - 27th. September. 2016

A fine sunny weekend with lots of rail enthusiasts present.

Davey and Jennifer Gipsy attracted lots of interest . The railway is fascinating and the steam engines were polished and smart. The coaches had the old style doors and windows with leather strap to pull up the window.  We all wish the company success in their ambition to extend the length of track.

Sampford Peverell rally, 16th August.

Sampford Peverell rally, 16th August. A small rally but well organised. Some very interesting vehicles were present. Informal atmosphere so public can get up close to cars and tractors.


South Molton Steam and Vintage Rally.

Davey and Jennifer Gipsy were at the rally for both days. Sadly the weather was cool but much interest in Davey and the Gipsy.




A satisfied customer !

A picture sent to me - a good choice of reading matter.
