Jack Oltman of Minonk, IL and Louis Osterman of Denver, CO discuss the boiler jacket on Jack's 1914 Case steam engine.

1991 was an exciting year for the Pontiac Threshermen's Reunion. We'd like to tell you a little about our show and what's new for 1992!

This year is our 44th reunion and, believe me, it really is a reunion. About 16,000 people pass through our gates each year, many of whom have come to Pontiac year after year. Each new year brings new faces and we think that's great!

Our show includes all the usual things you'd expect to see at a steam show, but we have lots of extra things, too.

The Iron Pony steam train runs daily at our park during the show. This scale train was built by Augie Otto in the 1950s and is now owned and operated by the Farmer and Nowa families. You can board the train, sit back and relax for a bit while visiting the show.
