Steam filled the air this past weekend at the Lorain County fairgrounds where enthusiasts gathered for the 45th Annual LaGrange Engine Club show. Steam traction engines, farm tractors, small gas engines and other farm equipment filled the grounds. Other attractions included a large flea market, wood carving, and a consignment auction.
