Plowing with Kitten Steam Engine No. 220,25 HP

By Al New

5427 W. 900 South, Pendleton, Indiana 46064.

Operated by Alan New and Jim New. These engines are a little
easier to handle with two men as all of them I have seen, except
one, had the steering on the left and the throttle, reverse, and
clutch levers on the right side. This engine was built about 1935.
They were built by Kitten’s Foundry and Machine Works at
Ferdinand, Indiana, and 224 of them were built. These later ones
had butt-strap boilers. This engine is owned by the Al New family,
Pendleton, Indiana. It is the feature engine at the 1990 Pioneer
Engineer’s Show at Rushville, Indiana.
