Midwest Old Threshers Reunion

RR #1, Box 453 Albion, Indiana 46701

This photo was taken at the 1987 Midwest Old Threshers Reunion,
Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

The 1987 engineers are Jay Sigafoose, Hayesville, Iowa, 52562,
and Larry Palmer.

The Stevens engine was built by A.W. Stevens & Son, Auburn,
New York. It is 9 HP, engine #1774, 6 x 9′, manufactured in
1890 owned by Midwest Old Threshers.

It was an honor to be assigned to this uniquely engineered and
designed engine as it must have been for the original owner, close
to a century ago.

It’s a rear mount design, equipped with a brake. Boiler has
rocking grates, and a dumping ash pan. The engine runs good as
new.

In the background, Paul Collinson, Galva, Illinois, can be seen
in the cab of the 110 HP Case engine. This show is one that
everyone should attend at least once and they will want to go every
year. Happy Steaming!
