Default Rough and Tumble show report 2006

I was there all 4 days helping out, and the weather was great. No rain no thunder no lighting and it was not too hot. There was a small tornado about 20 feet wide that went through the gas engine area, I didnt witness it first hand but a few people told me about it. It sent umbrellas , tarps and canopys into the corn fields. It looked like there was no shortage of spectators, I can,t wait till next year.

We saw it. That was something else. The blue tarp and kids umbrella went for a long, high ride.

Here are my comments from the other thread, I'll try to add some pics when I get a chance.

We had a great time at the show, lots of stuff to see. I think we counted almost 45 steam traction engines, not including the scale models. There were a bunch of Oil Pulls and other large gas tractors as well. Luckly we made it there early Friday afternoon just in time for the Steam Games, and I'm glad we didn't miss that. They did a belting demonstration, backing a thresher demo, slow race, figure 8 race, "gate race", a couple other events I don't remember what they called, and to top it all off they had a spark show with a beautiful Keck on the fan and a Baker on the Prony brake. I got some awesome pics of the spark show and some video too, I'll have to post them later. I also managed to get a pic and video on my camera phone, which I sent to my friends back home, who all think I'm crazy!! LOL!

There were a lot of people hanging around Friday afternoon, and even more spectators on Saturday. I'm glad to see that show doing so well and so much going on.

Here's a few of mine from Friday night's spark show.



Showing the fan:


The Aultman Taylor with the steam generator and HUGE headlamp!! You can't see the engine, but you probably could have seen the light from outer space!

Here are some more of my pictures from this year's show. These first few engines are a sad sight though, none of them were running. I don't know the extent of disrepair which is keeping them from steaming, but I hope someday they'll run again. I'd be happy to adopt any of them!!

2 Frick portables, 3 Case tractions, 1 Frick traction, and a beautiful Peerless traction...

The Frick portables are engines #17245 (small) and #17484 (large)


Case traction engines:
#20860 15hp with canopy
#23513 75hp with canopy, steam dome is cut off
#unknown, no tag on the buttstrap engine w/o canopy


Frick #?????, I can't read the number in my photo, maybe 10893?


Beautiful Peerless RR #9172

Next is the engine lineup that really makes me love Kinzers!! All these engines were steamed up and most were driving around and running the prony brake or fan or saw mill or thresher. I don't recall seeing the undermount Avery drive around on Saturday, but I believe they did have a fire in it! It was funny at times to see the huge traffic jams when 4 or 5 engines would be driving around and arrive at the same intersection at the same time. You definitely have to keep your eyes and ears open at R&T, there are tractors everywhere!

Besides the steam tractors, there were many other sites to see. They have 2 enormous stationary engine sheds, 1 for gas/diesel and the other for steam. There were plenty of gas tractors, lots of Oil Pulls, an old Frick gas tractor, a Huber gas tractor, etc. The hit and miss section looked a little thin on Saturday and some people were packing up just after lunch.

Here are some pics from the back side of the fairgrounds. I guess this could be described as an Industrial steam demonstration.

Steam powered well drilling


Cement mixer


The Erie shovel dug a nice big hole!


This Keystone excavator was an impresive sight.

Although I've only eaten there once, yes, the food is good too. Last year the g/f came with me and we decided to eat at Miller's down the road. People have told me about it so, we checked it out. Though, I thought, it was a little more expensive then other smorgesborge (sp) places I've been to, it too was very good food.

I have a video of the steamers whistling at noon. It is a great time to be right in the middle of 30 old steam engines.

I have had trouble emailing the video so I think the video is too large for staks.
