Default Winamac, Indiana Show

Hello All -

Well, it was an off-and-on rainy day here in northern Indiana …. good for corn and soybeans …. not so good for combining wheat or doing steam shows. That said, the 31st annual Northern Indiana Power from the Past show in Winamac seemed to be well attended today never-the-less. Here are some pics from our brief time at Winamac ….

First is from the City Park that fronts the Pulaski Co. Fairgrounds where the show is sited. Both park and fairgrounds are located on an oxbow of the Tippecanoe River. This view shows the pedestrian/bike suspension bridge that spans the Tippe. In its surroundings of numerous mature trees and cultivated beds, this is a most lovely spot to conduct a steam/tractor/engine show.

Second, the lineup of full-size steamers (l > r): Brad Bonnell’s 28-HP MINNEAPOLIS “Canadian Special”, Warren Bickel’s 22-HP MINNEAPOLIS, Lyal Harmon’s 20-75 DS NICHOLS & SHEPARD, Jerry Wolgamood’s ADVANCE- RUMELY “Universal”, and (just barely) Kent Bonnell’s 80-HP CASE. Brad’s ˝ scale CASE 65-HP was on the grounds too, but I didn’t snap any pics of this engine …. sorry, Brad.

Third, Lyal’s NIC taking on water.

Last, Jerry’s “Universal”.

And, here are three more -

First, Warren’s MINNIE.

Second, Brad drives his MINNIE to belt up to the sawmill.

Last, Brad and the sawyers check things out before powering up. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that this mill was constructed by Brad’s grandfather, the late Frank Miller.

Cheers! -

Ron

Ron: could you please help me out, thinking about attending this show in 2013 and could you compare it to Portland,IN or Baraboo WI to let us know
what we would find. We love the flea/swap market in Portland in August.
Thank you in advance..
