Show every Summer at Kinzers PA.

Those things take about 25 turns of the steering wheel (no power steering, for some reason :-) ) to get around a turn, but at the pace they travel, there's plenty of time to get the job done. Should have air conditioning also, driver right behind a big firebox, and working in a cloud of steam.

Not my idea of fun..
