Ederville NC show

38 posts in this topic

Spent yesterday at Edervile NC just outside of Carthage, NC at Ken Eder's show Ken has the largest collection of steam tractors in the world. He also has built a building just for IH items and is set up like a dealership. He came and got the tall IH sign from me on Labor Day this year. Saw Breden Dixon(64140) there also. Enjoy; the pictures don't do this show justice.

His theme was a Century of Progress. This bridge Beam says it all.

Ken Eder is a super nice down to earth guy. He grew up on a dairy in upstate NY. While in high school he worked helping upright trains and cleaning up grain spills. He told me when he moved to NC he would go to Hardee's and get a hamburger and water because he couldn't afford a soda. I should have taken pictures of his working equipment that he uses to upright trains. He has everything loaded, ready to go on a moments notice in case the railroad calls. He has assembled this collection in less than 12 years. He opens up his collection for this 3 day show once a year. I'll definately go back. Eason
