This photo is of Ace Wischstadt explaining to school children how a 1912 Case steam tractor powers a saw mill at the Southwestern Gas and Steam Engine Museum, 2040 N. Santa Fe Ave., Vista, California 92083 (619-941-1791). School Days are held in May and October for local school students of all ages. Over 1000 students attend this mini threshing bee. They learn about blacksmithing, steam and gas engines, ride a 1/3 scale train and experience butter churning in our country farm kitchen.
