Titus Brubaker, 92, operating one of his engines (Peerless) in the parade at Rough and Tumble's Old Thresherman's Reunion at Kinzers, Pa. last August. Mrs. Brubaker is the passenger. Activities planned for 1986 include: Spring Picture Night, May 9; Spring Steam-up Show, May 9-10; 38th Annual Reunion, August 13,14,15,16. For the past four years, a special display has been set up featuring a major line of tractors and farm machinery. For 1986, the honored manufacturer will be Oliver, and in addition, a special gas engine display will feature the New Holland engine.

This is a picture of Terry Crandall's 16 HP Huber and Graham Sellers' separator, threshing wheat at the Yesterday and Today Threshing Club Litchfield, Michigan, July 12, 13, 14, 1985.

It is an approximately half scale model steam engine built by H. Paul Crump of 853 Clintonville Road, Paris, KY 40361. Mr. Crump spent four years building the engine which he says 'sure has lots of power.' It measures 9 feet 7 inches long, with 4x5 Uniflow cylinder.

Above are photos taken by Charles Harthy of 1629 Robbins Road, Grand Haven, MI 49417 at Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion in Rollag, last year.
