Steam Era - Milton Ontario.

Still with two days left (Sunday & Monday) Milton's steam era show is one of the largest in North America.  It is a great day event to see all the historic stem tractors, vintage gasoline tractors and even a bunch of classic cars.  This year is the 51st year of the show.  It is really great to see the history of farming equipment, to see these monsters of agriculture in action again is quite amazing.  Their size is overkill and when you here how quiet they are, it really boggles the mind.  Some of the highlights are the 12 noon whistle blow (which you can here about 10 km away!), the tractor pull, a steam lumber mill, and a steam rock crusher.  There is even a "Traders Post" with antiques and knik-knaks.
