Kelly Chit-wood admiring his Uncle John's 1/4 scale steam traction engine.

There is nothing quite as fascinating as seeing the world through the eyes of a child. This applies to everything as well as steam engines as illustrated in this photo of Kelly Chit-wood. His expression seems to be one of awe and amazement. Kelly is the son of David and Lynette Chit-wood of Haviland, Kansas. The quarter scale Case model Kelly is admiring belongs to his Uncle, John Chit-wood, of Conway Springs, Kansas. John was displaying this model as well as his other pieces of fine workmanship this past Labor Day weekend at Ternings annual show in Valley Center, Kansas. John works hard during the winter months to produce his exhibits. One can be assured that something spectacular will emerge from his shop for display next year.

Tom and Lois Terning presenting a check to a Muscular Dystrophy Foundation representative. Aaron Terning and Dan Hedrick are at left. A percentage of the steam train ticket sales went to Muscular Dystrophy.

Another fellow who does not have any idle time is Allen Smith of Girard, Kansas. Allen and his wife display at several shows during the year and his many models are always a big attraction.
