The Tennessee Valley Steam/Gas Engine Association recently completed a very successful steam and gas engine show and is planning for a larger event next year. The Tennessee Valley Association is new on the show scene, but will be heard from in years to come.

This year there were a number of steam operated engines and related equipment; one full size tractor; one size tractor and several scale Case engines; a scale steam boat; steam pumps, steam bell-ringer and various horizontal and upright engines.

The gas engine line-up ranged from a modest 6 HP Witte to a 3/4 HP built for the John Deere Plow Company. In between were Fairbanks Morse, Eclipse, Maytags, small Wittes, Internationals and others.

As a part of the show the Antique Automobile clubs of Huntsville, Anniston, and Gadsden, Alabama were on hand with 35 antique autos.

Approximately 3000 people attended the one-day show and 700-1000 toured the stern-wheeled steamer that was on hand for the show.
