The first Doughty Valley Power Show was held July 20-21, 2001 at the Abe Mast family farm in Millersburg, Ohio. Abe and his brother, Dan, own a sawmill on the property, and engines lucky enough to attend had the opportunity to belt up and play, running a total of 5,000 board feet of hardwood through the No. 34 Enterprise mill's 60-inch saw.
A view of the Mast family farm, engines steamed and getting ready to go. Including portables, 10 engines made it to the first Doughty Valley Power Show.
This show is one of the gems of the steam community, a unique gathering of engines and enthusiasts in a pastoral setting far from the madding crowd. This year's show was held July 19-20, and a show is being planned for 2003. Contact Abe Mast at: 4490 T.R. 370, R.R. 4, Millersburg, OH 44654.
