Today is my final post on the Great Oregon Steam-Up that took place last weekend, and will be going on this weekend as well up in Salem, Oregon. It was a wonderful opportunity to observe all of the steam-powered equipment. It also served as inspiration for the many steampunk works I have on the go.
Aside from the many fantastic and amazing steam machines, there were plenty of activities to stay busy. There were also 1/8 scale coal, gas, diesel and battery powered trains, a steam crane operation, and steam-powered threshing, antique tractor harvesting, baling and binding.
So enjoy the pictures below and if you're in the area this weekend, make sure you take a few hours out and stop by! For more information, click Here. By the way, if you do go on the 6th and 7th, there will also be hot air engines on display - something they didn't have last weekend.
