Belltown Engine Show

26 April 2009

Colchester CT

It ahs been a number of years since I last visited this show.  Even though it is very close to my home it usually comes and goes before I notice it on the calendar.  But this year I was on top of things for a change and made it over to the show grounds.  

I ran into Norm Jones and Ray HasBrouck who were both displaying their engines.  Norm was set up with Russ Steeves and Rich Hubbard but they were off about the show grounds when I was by their display so I didn't get to say hi to them.
