The Third Annual Jim Monaghan Antique Engine Show was held at
Domino’s Farms, headquarters of Domino’s Pizza Incorporated
located off US-23 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on October 25 and 26,
The event featured eighty-six exhibitors of steam and gas
engines, related paraphernalia and other contraptions. Also
featured were classic cars from the Domino’s Pizza collection,
two steam launches including the Olde English ‘D’ owned by
Domino’s and a steam powered boat called Steamer Telegraph,
owned by the show’s chairman, Jim Monaghan.
Members of the Huron Valley Live Steamers of Ann Arbor
constructed a 7 gauge, 500 foot long oval train track and
Domino’s owner and founder, Tom Monaghan, was the guest
conductor on this unique live steam train.
Despite the uncooperative weather rain, rain and more rain 1,700
people attended the show and both the exhibitors and the public
enjoyed the weekend.
