Sorry It has taken so long to post some photo's. I will start with my table and the MEM guys around me and expand from there.

The bolt with nut is 1 3/4-5, the rest are trick bolts. On the right is my Val engine and on the left is a clever steam engine using planetary gears and a set of 2 to 1 reduction gears to operate the eccentric made by a friend in Lancaster.



The MEM crew was well represented by Scott, Dave, Dan & Sid.





At my back was a collection of CO2 airplane engines, steam and sterling engines.


Now before I run against the photo limit I will post this.

If you want wanted some glass plate photography, Art here is your man!

The cloth in the left hand corner of the shot is covering the camera.

Here are some clever steam engines!



And for the steam train crowd.


Now just some random engines.

And quick before I run out of gas.

Yeah this is my favorite rat trap!






It was extremely busy both days, some of the photos reflect this. Others were taken on Thursday after setting up.
That's it, enjoy!

Thank you for the photos Art,

It's good to see such a well attended show, organised for the benefit of the exhibitors, rather than just to rip-off the visitors at the door.
Some UK show organisers could learn from that.   :thinking:

Thank you posting the pictures.
These are a lot of interesting models from high quality craftmanship.
Unfortunately for me it is a too far distance to visit this great exhibition ;D.

This isn't my video, but Gil did a nice walk-through of the 2024 Cabin Fever show which may be of interest for those who cannot attend:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9BxinYI1I" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX9BxinYI1I</a>

In the middle of the video he showed a shot of the Saturday crowds where it can get so busy you can barely move around.

Very nice pictures Art.  It was a great show.  Iím so happy that I made it this year.  It was nice to catch-up with some familiar faces. 

My Elmerís Tiny display ( full, half and quarter scale) is at 48:09 in Gilís video.

Y'all, thanks so much for posting the pictures and video for this years show.

I was really pleased to see two engines built from castings I once produced, the Marion and the Swan.
