Here is a lot of fun. A whole barrel of fun. Dan Zehr operating his Gas Barrel Special built by Mr. George Foos, Farmington, Illinois. It is such novelties that makes life interesting.

I am a charter member of the Michigan Live Steam Club and as my
contribution have built a one-sixth scale model of the 1911 sixty
hp. Case engine and 54 inch 32×32 cylinder separator with feeder
and stacker. A lot of work, luck and some thought went into these
and since they perform very nicely I am pleased-as-all-get-out with
them.

For the benefit of any who may be interested I give some details
of this engine, taken from the Case 1911 catalog sold me by Vic
Winter mantel.

Five inch boiler, 1 and thirteen-sixteenth by 1 and
thirteen-sixteenth cylinder; 6 inch flywheel, 13 inch flues 15
inches long, 5×7 inch firebox, 11 inch rear drivers and 7 inch
front wheels. I think I could have put one more flue in, which
would have given just that much better steaming qualities, although
it does very well as a steamer. I carry 90 pounds of steam and can
maintain this when running the separator. I can do only a fair job
of threshing wheat heads broken into three parts so the stems will
make the turn in the stacker. Will have to change my screens a
little.

This explains why I hope you will see fit to give more space to
the model section of your magazine, as I’ll bet there are
plenty of readers who are interested.
