It Keeps Getting Better Every Year!

I haven't written in a long time and I just thought I had better write now while I'm not busy. I ran a model of a rear mount, double cylinder Nichols & Shepard at the Central North Dakota Steam Threshers Reunion. Of course I am only 15 years old so I usually have Charlie

Baldock help me run it. This year he was sick so I asked Mike Podruski to help me and he said he would. He spent most of his time over at the big engines, but I am a very firm believer that you learn better by doing the things and learning them yourself; so I like to learn that way, too.

This is a picture of the original George White. It was built in 1913, and has a 25 HP engine. Grandpa bought it from Earl Dixon of Duncan, Manitoba, in 1961.

The George White traction engine model. It is 40% in size, or2/5 scale. It was built in the early '70s by my grandfather, the late Ole Aslakson.

A model of the double cylinder, rear mounted, 25-85 HP Nichols & Shepard traction engine. It is1/3 scale and was also built by my grandfather the late Ole Aslakson, in the mid to late '60s. In this picture I am driving it in the daily Parade of Engines at the Central North Dakota Steam Threshers Reunion.
