FEATURED ENGINES

R&V Re-Union 2010 Mount Pleasant Iowa

Mount Pleasant is home to the Midwest Old Thresher's Reunion which attracts a crowd numbering over 100,000 admissions annually during an extended five-day weekend which ends on Labor Day. The reunion dates back to 1950 and pays tribute to the agricultural heritage of the American Midwest in an extensive, highly interactive manner, with live-action exhibition-style displays centering on restored mechanical equipment, particularly steam engines, farm tractors, stationary gas engines, antique and classic cars, and the popular narrow-gauge trains and electric trolleys. Country music shows featuring top-name performers, an expansive modern campground with transportation to the main grounds, and an extensive food court and numerous other offerings (run entirely by local churches and nonprofit organizations) are some of the amenities Old Threshers guests enjoy.

September 2nd to 6th, 2010 saw the biggest gathering of R&V engines since the factory centenary in 2003.
This event was hosted by the Midwest Old Threshers, Mount Pleasant, Iowa and we thank them very much for once again hosting a fantastic show.
Every model of R&V engine was represented
with 120 engines attending the five day show.
Exhibitors came from far a field, some traveling 1000's of miles.
Many of the rarer early engines appeared at the show which were well received by other serious collectors.
A bus tour to the R&V factories, in Moline, was a highlight of the event.

Many thanks to Barry and Michelle Tuller for making this show happen.
