(This story by six-year-old Clifton Wilson was sent to us by Penny Wezel, secretary of Delaware Valley Old Time Power & Equipment. It is his impression of their 1989 show.)

I went to the engine show yesterday and the day before that too. There were a lot of engines there and I looked at them. It was fun! The engines were real neat!

The biggest one was really neat because somehow the engine was going and the steam stack wasn't attached onto the engine. Some of the engines were also very tiny. They were running also. They were so neat that I really wanted one.

There were little toy ones that weren't really toys. They were very breakable.

There was an engine that had a really big belt that ground up corn from dried corn cobs. It only ground up the corn that was on the cob, not the corn cobs. Then the cobs went down a chute and then they got ground up too.
