This was the 33rd year for the Gateway Mid-America Farm Toy Show. Roy Lee, his wife Audrey and daughter Faye hosted the event. Almost everyone in the Baker family is involved and along with members of the Gateway Farm Toy Club.
There are many innovators that come to the St. Louis show building scratch built toys and performing amazing custom jobs and this year the competition in the model contest and the farm layouts were stiff. I am glad I just write about it and don’t try to judge. I think though that Roy Lee’s rendition of this 1939 flathead Lincoln V12 engine though is pretty cool.
Roy Lee brings collectors together through his love of the hobby and the love is returned to the Baker family one and all.
