Show Time! Looking Back on the 2017 Show Season

Farm Collector readers share their favorite shots of steam engines, tractors, gas engines and more from the 2017 show season.


| February 2018


Got a case of the wintertime blues? A dose of show season fun may be just what you need! In this special section we feature the best of dozens of photos submitted by readers of Farm Collector. Photos from every corner of the country bring summer back to life and with it, the unique delights experienced by young and old as they take in their favorite shows.

This year’s batch of photos is one of the best ever. These shots are bound to banish the cold weather blues. You can practically hear the sounds of steam whistles, 2-cylinder tractors and hit-and-miss engines; you can almost smell the coal smoke. Kettle corn, anyone?

Pictures like these may even serve as a wake-up call. If you have a project or two in mind, daylight’s burning! It won’t be long before a new show season starts – and you’ll want to be ready. Until then, on with the show! FC
