Thresherman Used Baker Steam Engines

Ohio family keeps steam era memories alive with steam engines from A.D. Baker Company.

A 1926 Baker 21-75 Heavy Duty Uniflow (No. 17678), the engine Raymond Fork used for threshing. When Raymond bought the engine from an Indiana man, the name “Eleanor” was painted on the canopy’s roof. “When a plane flies over and the pilot sees the engine,” the seller explained to Raymond, “they’ll know whose tractor it is.”
