The Puget Sound Antique Tractor, Gas & Steam Show in Lynden Washington is an annual event very worth while visiting if you are interested in things mechanical. Berthusen Park is a dedicated site with many operating displays permanently built. As the name of the show implies there are tractors and engines. In addition there is a tractor pulling competition, a parade of antique tractors, an operating steam powered sawmill , an operating steam powered yarder with "A" frames, an operating sawmill flat belt driven by an antique tractor, many operating engines from tiny to huge, a corn grinding concession with the corn ground on site with an antique tractor for power, a threshing demonstration, a collectables flea market and on and on.
This year located next to the steam sawmill you would have found a display of air cooled drag saws by fellow collector MARSHALL TROVER
The gentleman seated in the display is Mr. Trover Sr.
There is a new addition to the collection waiting on a lowbed trailer to be installed in the display shed. It is an example of the last model of engine that was manufactured by the Atlas company.
