Essex Junction, Vermont Fairgrounds for Weathervane Wednesday

 Today's weathervane was spotted at Essex Junction, Vermont.

This sweet steam engine weathervane is located on the cupola over the main gatehouse of the Champlain Valley Expoistion.  It is a two dimensional weathervane with lots of details including the wheels, smoke stack (with smoke!), bell, cow catcher, etc.  Since the gatehouse looks like a train station, this was a very appropriate choice for a weathervane. 

This location hosts over 100 events a year.  The most famous is the 10 day long agricultural fair every summer.  This year the fair runs from August 23 to September 1, 2024.  

For the truly curious:
