Saturday, January 16, 1993, was the first annual Winter Show for the Blue Mountain Antique Gas and Steam Engine Association. This was the project of president Jody Pysher, and my husband, board member Gregory Rush.

The turnout was great, with 40 exhibitors showing a total of 65 engines, 4 tractors, and 2 antique cars. Some exhibitors from New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, were among the diehard engine people. Visitors from as far away as Ohio came to enjoy the day also. Even though there was some snow on the ground, the bonfire along with the free hotdogs and 'hobo stew' helped keep the spirits warm.

This started out as a joke three years ago with everyone thinking these guys were crazy, until it actually happened this year. What a success it was! Oh well, guess the joke is on them!

There were some engines that changed hands, parts for sale and one dealer selling farm toys and literature.

We would like to say Thank You to all who showed up, and those who helped to make this show the success that it was. Hope to see you next January!
