The Parade of Power lead off with their Dain Tractor.
They must store it in a building because I could not find it later to take some pictures of the Dain. I did take pictures of the other side and of the back of the Challenger that is also shown in the above video.
I took videos of all of the steam engines. If they were JI Case, I added them to an existing posting. The others were used to create a new posting. The four primitive internal combustion engines are in this video. I took pictures of all of the tractors in the parade and videos of some of the older ones. I'll use them to augment existing postings or to help create new postings in the future. I'll probably update this posting as I use the material in other postings. But I need to publish now so that I can get a URL to use in other contexts such as You Tube and postings that I have already augmented. You may want to check back later to see if I made much progress with the additional pictures and videos.
Their site has pictures of parades. I wonder which year had this many steam tractors.
One really nice aspect of this show is that all of the tractor display lines are under trees so you are walking around in the shade. This is a real nice feature on a hot August afternoon.
They were restocking their steam shovel with coal while I was there. I came across a video of it in action, but now I can't find it again. But I did find another video.
