There is a steam powered lawnmower at the ROUGH and TUMBLE OLD THRESHERMANS HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION in Kinzers PA, just a few miles east of Lancaster PA, Mennonite/Amish territory. Every August there is a festival running 4 days, 33 acres covered with hundreds of antique steam and IC machines, two steam rail lines, and some truly giant running engines. The Strasburg Railroad and Pennsylvania Railroad Museum is very close, each with much steam machinery. Hope things don't get delayed too much by August.
