I am posting a number of pictures I took at the Platte CountyStea and Gas Show held at the Platte County Fairgrounds in Tracy, MO this week. Sorry for the quaity of pictures. I forgot to take my DSLR camera and had to make use of my cell phone. I thought that was better than not taking any pictures at all. Steam pictures will be posted in a separate thread. I tried to take mostly pictures of unusual items. Not many JD's there. The emphasis this year was on Oliver. There must have been every Oliver ever made at this. Anyway, there sure was a bunch of them. There were far more tractors at this show than any show I have ever been to.

Thanks for the pics! :thumbup1gif:

I had my three "modified" L&G tractors loaded & ready to leave at 6 am, instead, I was pulling up to our local ER at 6. By the time we sat there for 2 hours & another 1-1/2 hours waiting on prescriptions, I couldn't have gotten to the show before noon!

Oh well, maybe next year, I've been trying to get to the Platte County show for three years now, haven't made it yet! ~~ Lowell

OK now, wife had a belly ache, with her past history, not something to mess around with. Last weekend it was my 92 year old mother in the hospital! ~~ Lowell
