The engineer was Ezra Coats of Templeton, Ind. (seated), who with a group of school children, posed on the rear platform. Permeating the atmosphere

under the giant oak trees at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds, was a pleasant aroma of brewing coffee, oily steam, saw-dust, corn meal, fresh apples, and soft coal smoke. This made the older generation of spectators look, linger and reminisce sweet memories of long ago.
