The Northern Indiana Power from the Past hosted its 17th annual show July 14-17, 1994. The popular show located at Winamac, Indiana, drew thousands of people who enjoyed the shaded grounds surrounded by the Tippecanoe River. Pleasant weather, good food, lively entertainment, and friendly people all contributed to the success of the show.

Assembled were approximately five steam engines, four scale-model steam engines, a scale-model steam train, 250 tractors, 400 engines, 175 hog oilers, and a variety of cars, trucks, and other equipment.

The show featured International tractors, engines, and equipment; and faithful International enthusiasts arrived with more than 160 tractors, numerous engines, and a dozen trucks. Looking across the grounds, it almost looked like a 'sea of red!' It was the general consensus that this was the nicest and best variety of International tractors ever assembled at a show.

Featured at this year's show were hog oilers, whose proud owners arrived with an amazing array of them.

Throughout each of the four days, working demonstrations gave everyone a first-hand education of power from days gone by. Besides a saw mill and threshing machine, there was a baler, shingle mill, flour mill, edger, Baker fan, blacksmith, corn shredder, and corn sheller.
