These photos are from the Connecticut Antique Machinery
Club’s June 2 Gas-up, Picnic, and Swap Meet. We had both
traction engines and the steam roller fired up and running.

All our members and friends brought a pot luck dish and we
arranged the picnic tables together so folks would sit next to each

fries along with hot dogs. The weather was great and all had a good

We’ve been clearing more land for exhibition space in the
Fall Festival and have also started to clear and grade the railroad
right of way.

The photo at right shows the steam roller at work compacting the

We’ve been out collecting and bringing in more stationary
engines. We brought water and electricity down to the Industrial
Hall. Also, we are pouring part of the concrete floor in the
Industrial Hall, as well as footings for an extension to the five

Fairbanks Morse gas tractor can go into one of the main bays.
It’s probably the largest gas tractor in the Northeast.

The Cream Hill School project should be starting any day now, as
soon as we finalize the architect’s contract.
