Weekend Steam: Southern Indiana Antique Machinery Show

Andy Gline has his Huber on the sawmill again this year at the Evansville show.  We were entertained by stack talk and the whistle as we strolled around looking at gas engines.  The show continues Sunday, and the weather is ideal, so head to Evansville first thing in the morning.

Evansville is celebrating a century since Hercules engines began production, and the number of Hercules-built engines on the grounds today was quite impressive. There were more 12 HP Hercs in town than at any time in the past. Hercules built five at a time, and they didn't build that size unless there was an order. I think I counted twelve of the big 12 Horse models today, and several of them were running.
