Each year in October Val Pringles along with volunteers fire up and gets the steam
going to operate the various steam machines that Val has on his farm.

The public is invited to enjoy what it was like many years ago.
Val can be seen here operating the saw in the mill
Looking down towards the farm house from the car show parking lot
Hard to see however Val is now feeding the binder.
Dwight is busy explaining to a group how a steam engine works.
This steam tractor runs another sawmill. A little smaller than one Val was running as shown above.
Each year Val manages to add something different as this was no exception
This year was a Rock Crusher and Wagon for hauling away the crushed rock.

This required two motors.
 First to run the rock crusher 
Second is run the loading belt.

An yearly favorite is to see the
Marmon Steam Shovel in operation

That's it for another year.
