Letting off Steam

The 2005 summer of steam is looking good! From the biggest shows to the smaller get-togethers, steamers are out and enjoying the season.

It seems as if everyone I know made it to Wauseon this year, and they all keep rubbing it in, telling me what a great show I missed.

Despite the late June heat, there was lots of steaming going on, and I'm really regretting missing the mini-reunion of the four Rynda engines that were on hand.

We featured one of those engines, Doug and Sandy Langenbach's 30 HP Huber, in the January/February 2005 issue of Steam Traction, detailing its renovation to a running engine.

When we featured the Huber, Doug hadn't made it around to the engine's cosmetics. But since then he's finished the Huber, and it's lovely with its new canopy and fresh paint.

The Huber's been a labor of love, and the labor was rewarded at Wauseon, where the Langenbach's received the John F. Limmer Memorial Trophy for the best restored engine for 2005.
