35th Annual Steam-O-Rama

| July/August 1993

E.A.S.E & O.E.S P.O. Box 652 Red Lion, Pennsylvania 17356.

The Early American Steam Engine & Old Equipment Society presented the 35th annual Steam-O-Rama on October 1-4, 1992 at the showgrounds on Manor Road in Lower Windsor Township, York County, Pennsylvania. Our feature this year was farm equipment and accessories manufactured in York and York County, Pennsylvania.

The York area has made vast contributions to this country's rich agricultural heritage, and the E. A. S. E. & O. E. S. wanted to created a showcase for these items. Over 86 exhibitors came to show over 200 separate pieces of equipment, accessories, and literature. They came with York and Capital gas engines, Hench and Drumgold and Auchey planters, corn shelters from Hench & Drumgold, Root & Case scales, troughs from many different foundries, W. C. Hildehrand and Acme Jr. Wagons. Plate mills, corn crackers, etc. came from far and near to help demonstrate York County's part in the industrial revolution. All or the York pieces were exhibited in a special area set aside just for that purpose. Of course no display of local pieces would be complete without a Pullman car, a Farquhar steam engine and Sheppard diesels.

This was so successful that the board of directors has decided to repeat the York exhibit every five years. So get out your York manufactured pieces, dust them off, and start planning for 1997.

We remain a small, friendly show with good food and fun for all ages. The York County Sheep and Wool Growers bring us a petting zoo for the little ones each year.

Lamb sandwiches and baked potatoes are served throughout the four-day show. Our own kitchen serves a varied menu of great food all day, every day. And outside, the crew is making soup, apple butter and pan haus over open fires.
