| March/April 1986

Judging from the response we have had to our 1986 Steam & Gas Show Directory, this will indeed be the most successful year yet for all the organizations and individuals who collect and show stationary gas engines and antique tractors.

We wish you the best and hope our staff members and representatives will carry the message in person.

The Directory, which is now available, has a pair of excellent color covers, and contains the listings of 476 shows the largest number ever. These shows are conducted throughout the U.S. and Canada and in some other countries. If you ordered in advance, your copy should be arriving any day; if you have not ordered, we suggest you do so now to stay fully informed.

Some of the articles in this issue have an unusual touch to them. One, on Linn tractors, is written by C. H. Wendel, who writes our Reflections column. Another is on a hay press, and a third is a Reid Company history.

We note that 'one story leads to another'. Some of the articles we are receiving are in response to articles that appeared earlier. We like that. There is a bond of readership and writership which connects all our good subscribers.

If you have a farm museum that you think we don't know about, we'd like to hear from you. We are trying to spread the word on museums of this kind, because of the increased interest everywhere in matters connected with farming.
