Bob Gallo loads lumber into a friend's scale model of a steam engine at the Missouri River Valley Steam Engine Association's 47th annual Back to Farm reunion on Saturday at Brady Showgrounds in Boonville. Even at such a small size, the steam engine still takes about an hour and a half to warm up. "They take quite a bit of attention," Gallo said.

BOONVILLE — Hundreds came to the Brady Showgrounds on Saturday for the 47th annual Missouri River Valley Steam Engine Association Back to the Farm Reunion Show. The event included many antique steam engines and tractors, and association president Jeff Pewitt even had his 1920 steam engine out threshing at the show.
