No, it wasn't an illusion. There sticking up in the overgrowth of palmetto and scrub is a real steam locomotive. My wife and I had left the main road a few miles back on our way to a fishing camp on the St. John's River in Florida when I thought I saw the

Myself and 20-40 Rumely Oil Pull. I have just finished giving her a good workout on the Hammer Mill and backed out of the belt. If you listen real close, you may imagine still hearing her chugging away.

rig at the I960 Pipestone Co.Fair. I have been wondering how many
thresher men have the separator that they started with when they
were boys.
