The folks at S.H.E.W. got a break this year! In 2009 the field was so soggy and soft from weeks of heavy rain that the show had to be canceled but in 2010 the conditions were just about perfect. We left the house early and headed up to MA arriving there around 9:30 AM, quickly found the NEMES guys and settled in for the day.

1:1 scale Rider-Ericson hot air engine
The winch was used for hauling hay bales into the barn loft. The big spool was for getting them up to the loft and the smaller spool was for dragging them across the loft floor.
