GREAT OREGON STEAM-UP CAPTURES FLAVOR OF THE NORTHWEST IN 'CENTURY' SHOW

A once-in-a-century experience is planned at this year's 'Great Oregon Steam-Up.' Set for two weekends (July 29-30 and Aug. 5-6) at the Antique Powerland Museum near Salem, Ore., the 30th annual event will focus on the heritage of machinery.

Fourteen separate restoration/preservation groups will set up exhibits at the show, each specializing in a different category: Steam, early gas engines, tractors, crawlers, farm implements, construction equipment, logging and sawing, blacksmithing, flour milling, trucks, rail and trolleys. Exhibits will include both full-size and scale model displays. Show organizers plan to present the equipment in working displays, to give a clear idea of the role early machinery played in farm and industrial applications.

The show, held at the 63-acre Powerland Heritage site, features games and pulls for all ages, parades, demonstrations, a vintage truck collection, miniature farm, toys and models, and entertainment.

A special feature at this year's show: Caterpillar Day (Saturday, July 29), commemorating the Caterpillar Company's 75th anniversary in 2000.



On Sunday, July 30, the focus will be on farming, logging and sawing. The next Saturday's theme will be transportation, trades and services. Powerland exhibits, say show organizers, are particularly strong in those categories, and a strong showing is expected. The SP 4449 steam locomotive will be onsite at the nearby Hopmere siding.
