We are working on filling in the ditch between the club house and Stella's house (which the club owns ) to allow for more parking. Also club members have been working on the Frick steam engine .

Hoping someone here is able to help me out.. I'm on the hunt for a 20 HP Ball engine, this was my dads and he had to sell it years ago. I contacted the guy who bought it and he sold it to a fellow in Huntington, IN. I talk to that buyer and he can not remember who he sold it to, but it went to New York. Attached is a picture of the engine maybe it will catch someones eye, not sure what it looks like today.. Thank you all in advanced!
Thank u everyone for making it a great show this year.
Since 1967, the Annual Gas and Steam Rally has called Genesee County home. Hundreds of exhibitors, thousands of visitors, and a whole lot of machinery take over a peaceful field in Alexander NY each September.

Drawing people from all over the country this event features attractions like antique tractors, steam engines, working models, a huge flea market and the always popular tractor-pull.

After a year put on pause, the Western New York Gas and Steam Engine Association concerted their efforts and put on one HECK of a show in 2021! The good ol' boys outdid themselves with this one!
This sign was purchased at the auction held at the steamshow... John is my father . I remember this sign hanging on our metal shed all of my childhood. Please whomever purchased this I would dearly love to have it , I'm willing to purchase it you outbid my cousin. Please feel free to contact me it would me the world to me . ❤
