Farmers and Threshermens Jubilee

WHERE STEAM IS KING


| March/April 1991


115 N. Second Street, Oakland, Maryland 21550

With the whistle blowing 'two longs, a short, and a long', the Frick Eclipse slowly puffed through the festival grounds.,

It was going to a section where seven other steam traction engines and a steam roller were already lined up for photographs. The photographic session was part of the opening day activities for the 38th annual Farmers and Threshermens Jubilee at New Centerville, PA, September 5th to 9th.

Each year for the past 37 years, this town in Somerset County of southwestern Pennsylvania has played host to 'steam buffs' in ever increasing numbers. Sponsored by the New Centerville and Rural Volunteer Fire Company, the Jubilee has become an event for the whole community.

Antique steam traction engines are the center of attraction on the festival grounds, but there are many other kinds of engines to be seen along with ancient farm equipment.

'I guess you heard my whistle signals,' laughed Mark Mull after he maneuvered his Frick Eclipse into line with the other steam engines. 'That one has the same deep tone as a railroad engine.'
