    Went to the Berryville Steam Show yesterday and took a bunch of pics.

    http://www.svsgea.com/

    Rode my motorcycle out to the event. Was wearing a red practical machinist t-shirt if anyone noticed.

    Boy was it hot. Got there late in aft, was busy on a bicycle ride that morning. Took a bunch of pictures. Was a good event - although by the time I got there people were packing up. But still managed to see an awful lot. Definetly want to go there next year early.

    Pics below mostly of tractors. Several traction engines, a few hit-n-miss engines, a beautiful restoed 50's Mack dump truck. A nice 50's GMC Tractor-truck, and a 20's PU truck.

    I know little about tractors. I just took pics of the ones that looked nice. I like the green Oliver tractors. They remind me of the offenhauser race cars of the 40' & 50's. The truck pics are near the end of the list.

    I was going to go Saturday. maybe even ride my Bonnieville. Even had a cooked up excuse not to go to work Sat. Woke up late, under the weather and didn't leave the house all weekend.
    Oh well there's always next year. Or next week, for the Berryville hamfest.

    Good pics, almost like being there.

    Thanks for the pictures. I have to say that I admire the heck out of these guys who keep all the old steam stuff running. I also have to say that the condition of what I've seen and sometimes the lack of knowledge at the agricultural shows scares me. I'm neither a boiler inspector nor a metallurgist, but yikes some of that stuff is old.
    Please be safe folks.
