For the 1985 show, which was the 25th Anniversary show the feature was Sawyer Massey if I remember correctly. That's the most SM engines I've ever seen in any one place at one time. I was only 10 at the time but I believe there were around 13-15 SM steam engines at this show. Has there ever been a bigger collection at any one time anywhere else?
