Dave Dearborn's 35th and last Annual Show

35 Years of Great Engine Shows


Text and photos by NEMES past president Norm Jones

The inclement weather on June 3 and 4 did not dampen the spirits of those who attended Dave Dearborn's 35Th annual engine show, held at his home in West Campton, New Hampshire. Dave is particularly interested in steam engines. His show is one of a select few that provides live steam to operate both full size engines as well as models. NEMES was very well represented at this year's event as you can see in the following pictures. The pot luck supper on Saturday evening, complete with live entertainment proved to be a great way to cap off the day. Phil St Jean and Dick Boucher recalled some special moments over the years and both presented Dave and Jackie with gifts to commemorate 35 years of great fun. Check out the pictures and see if you can recognize anyone!
