Folks in the USA and Europe are gearing up for "Show Season".  And Memorial Day is when things really get going in the States.

Sadly, we don't have many shows in Texas. 

My solution to this problem was to create the Inaugural Txlabman Steam, Carnival & Farm Show In Miniature (Txlabman SC&FS 2019).

The Inaugural Txlabman SC&FS 2019 showcases the creations of St. Paul Steam (SPS).

The Steam Plant is a SPS Jensen #5/5

The Steam Plant is driving:

SPS Replica Empire Giant Stride Swings No. 48 with SPS Restored Empire B-34 Variable Speed Unit

SPS Replica Jensen Windmill

SPS Modified Ertl Water Pump

Also pictured, BUT NOT RUNNING:

SPS Modified Ertl Corn Shucker

SPS Modified Ertl Milk Separator

SPS Custom Jensen Water Funnel

SPS Custom Jensen Transmission

Demon Industries Chuff Pot and Water Tower (RIP Geoff)

The figures were made by James Barnett with Peacock Island Workshop LLC. Check out his Facebook Page:

Thanks for the nice feedback guys.

It was fun putting it all together.

And the SPS Jensen #5/5 performed admirably.

The 1/2 filled boiler ran for 30 minutes.

The traction engines are currently lining up for the Sunday Parade!
