On May 23 & 24, 1998, the 5th annual Chicken town Gas & Steam Show was held at Chicken town Grove near Somerset, Pennsylvania.

We had a nice line up of steam which included: Frick, Peerless, Case and Twentieth Century; also we had some live steam half-scale models of a Peerless, Case, Frick and a quarter-scale Peerless. This year we put our steam to work thanks to Dave Weyand, who brought his four-bottom John Deere plow along. For those who like to hear a steam engine under load, put a plow behind it.

In addition, we have about 50 gas tractors of all sizes, hit & miss engines, a blacksmith, corn and buckwheat grinding, Baker fan, machinery parade, flea market, crafts, a large toy tent full of farm toys, and lots of good food.

I have included some pictures taken at our 1998 show. I think everyone will enjoy them. Thanks to everyone out there who takes the time and effort to put on these shows!

Our next show will be held May 29 & 30, 1999. I will look forward to seeing you there.
