Engine collectors from all across Indiana and Kentucky gathered May 7, 8, and 9, 1992 for the rebirth of the Buffalo Festival in Needmore, Indiana.

Once again Art and Jane Stewart were the hosts, and the scenic Need-more Buffalo Ranch came alive with power from the past, complete with cowboys and Indians.

Spectators viewed the gas engines and tractors, then gathered in the Stewarts' quaint and picturesque ranch restaurant for a tasty meal of buffalo cheeseburgers and buffalo chili.

Cowboys rounded up several bank robbers (just for fun!), and, to the delight of the crowd, carried the culprits off to jail.

The sharp bark from the exhaust of Pete Kubula's (Louisville, Ky.) big Reid and the smooth sound from Ron Frauel's (Corydon, In.) Bessemer thrilled the crowd the entire weekend.
