I attended this show and was amazed at some of the technology of the machines of 100 years ago. The first video shows mostly the outdoors exhibits, bulldozers, cranes, tractors, and such:

The second video shows mostly the indoor exhibits, including many industrial steam and old gasoline engines, mostly operating:


The last video shows the live steam train with a Shay locomotive featuring rather unique vertical pistons and worm drive:

Enjoy! :)

What kind of camera stabilizer do you have? Hate to complain but it was constantly swinging left/right and was anything but stable. Aside from that, what a fabulous collection. Lots to see there. Definitely goes on the must-see list.

It's just a simple small hand-held Nikon Coolpix L22 camera, shot while walking around, and then I think I used the YouTube shakiness correction which probably gave the videos a wavy appearance. Plus I was in a bit of a hurry because it was late in the day, and I should not have panned so quickly, but I wanted try and get as much as possible in the limited time I had. I may go again next year, and also visit the Strasburg RR museum which is nearby. It was a brutal daytrip drive from the KOA in Hagerstown, 2.5 hours each way, mostly stuck in traffic through Lancaster. But I came back through Christianna and Holtwood, and from there it's an easy and pleasant drive through nice country to my home in Cockeysville, MD.

Thanks for posting the vids and sorry for grumbling. I did a vid once and used the Youtube anti-shake feature and it created a twisting effect between the top and sides of the video that could probably make those with weak stomachs hurl :)

My shaper video has a similar distortion caused by the on-camera anti-shake and the result is the bull gear and scotch yoke are stop/starting.
