Default Mehmke Museum - Great Falls, Montana

As I said in the Steam & Traction thread Carl Mehmke's daughters Charlotte & Mardel have bought their brothers share of the Museum that was started in the late 40s by their Grandfather Walt Mehmke. When he passed Carl took it over and kept it alive till his health failed. The sisters have had to sell some things in order to be able to make the deal but have sold no Steam Engines, no big Gas tractors, no Crawlers. They plan to open it this spring and are planning a Start Up Show the last weekend of August 2016. Plans are to get most of the Gas Tractors out and running along with some Crawlers depending on how much help they get. Several of the fellows that come to the Crosby Show have said they will be there to help so we have no doubt that the tractors will be out and running as we all want to help and keep the collection intact and alive as would be Walt & Carl's wishes. Any comments, stories of past shows, pictures and help will be appreciated. Will be no pay but they will have Dinner & Supper there for the workers. Will be a lot of fun and lets pitch in and get things running again. John Tysse Jr Crosby, ND

Because you live in Ohio? Technically that's outside the grain belt or great plains whatever you want to call it.

Glenn and I live in the mid-Ohio valley, or some call the appalachia region of Ohio with all the hills. There may be some big collectors somewhere near us Glenn.

I always buy something on ebay, and then have to go pick it up.
