'Is that your steam engine?' asks an interested visitor.

'Yep!' says 7-year old David McLean. 'It's a 1912 Case.'

'What'll it do?' another question is fired from the crowd.



'She's got 25 HP on the draw bar and 75 on the belt. She'll pull a 10-bottom plow or thresh 1/4 section of grain a day', answers David as he reaches up to pull on the whistle to signal the start of the big engine.

Three thousand people watch as David and other members of the South Peace Centennial Museum sponsor their annual Pioneer Day on the third Sunday in July at Beaverlodge, Alberta.
