The 43rd annual reunion of the Pioneer Engineer's Club of Indiana was held the first weekend of August 1991 at the Rush County Conservation Club grounds, Rushville, Indiana.

The show was an outstanding success, graced with clear weather and a large turnout of both displays and visitors.

Nineteen steam engines, ranging from a 36 HP J.I. Case to a 23-90 A.D. Baker, were fired and running on all three days.

Two hundred sixty tractors were on hand, allowing visitors to compare everything from a Shaw Du-All to a 40-60 Rumely Oil Pull.

Some 60 gas engines were running, two of which, along with a stationary boiler and duplex pump, were used to keep the boilers full and the road dust settled.
