Rock River Thresheree
On Saturday September 2, 2006 I visited the 50th Anniversary Rock River Thresheree at Edgerton, WI. The weather was perfect and there was plenty of action on the grounds. There were plenty of steam traction engines in attendance. The German made 2ft gauge steam locomotive made numerous trips around the grounds.
There was a tragic mishap during the Parade of Power. An Advance-Rumley steam engine was having trouble moving forward in the parade staging area. After several attempts just as the engine moved forward the front steering spindle gave way and the front axle broke and the front end of the engine went into the ground. Luckily no one was hurt and the boiler stay intact. The area was closed off and the steam was blown off and the fire was out down and the boiler was allowed to cool down.
