A look back to the HCEA's October 17th Last Blast!

Click on each image for a closer look!
In a news posting earlier this fall, we announced that on Saturday, October 17th, the Simcoe County Museum (just North of Barrie, Ontario) and the Historical Construction Equipment Association of Canada (HCEA) were presenting their last event of the year - The Last Blast. The HCEA is "dedicated to the preservation and restoration of heavy construction equipment and the history of the people in the construction industry that helped to build Canada.
While I reluctantly couldn't make it as I was away on vacation in the USA, a number of our TRHA team members attended the event and we see above pictures of the old construction equipment being demonstrated at the event. Below we also have two brief YouTube videos which show two pieces of steam-powered equipment in action.
