The little village of Constableville, situated in northern New
York since 1796 is now the scene for a part of our yesterdays. A
group of old engine enthusiasts, mainly Constablevillians, have
gotten together to bring forth, restore and put to work this
equipment of bygone days. For three years of hard work as a group,
these people have managed to put on a successful gas and steam
engine show full of ‘working’ iron horses. The groups
unique and appropriate name, ‘Flywheels & Pulleys’
suggests the purpose of their show.

The crowds stand awed as they watch the machinery run. Among the
viewers are old timers who wait patiently for these ‘awed
youngsters’ to ask a question or two. The machinery includes a
1923 stone separator-crusher made in Marathon, New York, an
Ericsson hot air pumping machine, threshing machines, shingle
mills, wood splitter, drag saws, gas run washing machine, a Case
steam tractor and many smaller engines.

The show also includes craftsmen and flea market. It can be
viewed the first weekend (Saturday and Sunday) after Labor Day
every year.

So, if you are an enthusiast or just enjoy watching – plan to
visit the ‘Flywheels & Pulleys Old Time Gas Engine
Show’ and make time to see this historic village also.
You’ll be more than glad. The show is free – no admission is
charged. Food is available as are camper facilities.
