Lauren thanks for posting the pictures! I took a few but have no way to post them. This is one hell of a show with lots to see. The three 110 Best Steam tractors are something you will probably not see altogether again. Also was a real pleasure to talk with Don Hunter and see the Holt Steam Crawler he built. If you missed this show you really missed something special.

Lauren: Thanks for posting the pictures of the Best Show on Tracks. Being a Cat Collector I sure wish I could have made it to the show. Like Buzz said when you guys were here. Its a once in a life time thing.
I don't think one will ever see a thing like that again but hope something comes close so I can make it.
In the first set of pictures - what is the red engine??? Is it a BEST??
Again thanks for the pictures and look forward to seeing all you guys at Portland. - Ted

I too was there, I have many photos- I may post a few. Buzz let me drive the road roller for a while - WOW! What a machine. I also got to operate a Rumley Oil pull owned by Irvin Baker---I believe it was a 60-30 I can not think of a nicer sounding tractor. This was by far the best show I have been to, I do hope that they choose to do it again! (Ok, Everyone who was there, start sending off emails and letters asking when the next show is going to be...let them know that it was well worth the effort.)

may post pictures later

We had a 9 and half hr drive to Woodland and it sure was worth the time. That was a chance to see some great tractors. Thanks to all who helped to make it happen ! Jan

It's about a nine hour drive to Woodland from where I am, and it would have been worth it to have to WALK there. I can't even begin to say how great a time I had there

Tom, Willie, and everyone else, THANK YOU!!!
