Default Great Oregon Steam Up 2012

For those not familiar with the show, you will not be disappointed. I was like a little kid at the 2011 show. Hundreds of gas and diesel tractors participate in the daily parade, many are one of a kind. A live steam sawmill running daily draws a standing room only crowd. The train museum even demos a rail mounted steam crane each afternoon. I lost count of how many engines were running in the display area.

The swapmeet is pretty fair size, though not as massive as some of the midwest and eastern shows, plenty of good buys are still to be had. You can even take a ride on the onsite trolly. The show is held at Antique Powerland, a site wholly dedicated to all things machinery.

There is so much more, but if I tell you all of it, it will spoil the suprise. Hope to see you there!
