My engine is 3' x 4' cylinder, 12' barrel, 12 x 20 fire box. I purchased a ' governor from Racers Machine Shop, York Springs, Pennsylvania.

The boys on the engine are my grandsons, Steven and Rex Allan Holloway of Edmond, Oklahoma. Steven is 12 and Rex is 10. They are very efficient with it and really enjoy running it. Their daddy did all the welding on it. He did a neat job. It is tested for 150 PSI.

Carl has had a wide range of experience dating back to the early 1900's. He has run many makes of engines including working on the. Railroad locomotives now threshes every fall and drills wells in between.
