| November/December 1984

If you're interested in steam, especially models and toys, you'll want to know about the annual auction at the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Maine.

The price key for the sale held in July 1984 gives you an excellent idea of the way the sale went, and if you are attracted you had better get ready for the 1985 auction.

Here are some sale prices, picked from the key:

#186, an early steam engine and boiler model, maker's plate inscribed J. F. Werner, 62 Center St., N.Y., overall length 16 inches, height 9 inches, width 11 inches, $1,600.

#210, a Creators steam popcorn engine model, with fly ball governor, as used on early Creators Popcorn Wagons to run the peanut roaster, $800.

#219, a 6 HP vertical wine bottle steam engine, 60 inches high, 43 inches long, 21 inches wide, $400.
