Oliver B. Rhea, of Meadvilie, Pennsylvania, is making some adjustment to the lubricator on the 12 hp. Case that was built in 1886. The engine was self propelled when new but was guided by a team of horses. Note the seat and footrest for the driver. The engine is owned by Mr. Charles McMillen, of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

The engine and plow pictured here are the property of Gordon E. Smith, Member of the Provincial Parliament for the riding of Simcoe East (the Orillia District) in Ontario. The man at the wheel is Garnet Pattenden of Hawkestone, Ontario, who had been involved with steam all his life, especially Sawyer Massey products. Recently he hasĀ  been in charge of the restoration of a number of steam engines presently on display in Ontario museums.

The engine and plow was seen at the 1969 Steam Era, held at Milton, Ontario, on Labor Day week-end. This is the biggest show of its kind in Ontario. On display are over 30 steam engines, over 40 gas tractors (pre World War II), more than 125 gas engines, and an excellent display of models, domestic and agricultural antiques. Courtesy of Gordon E. Smith, M.P.P., Simcoe East, Toronto, Canada.

It takes a tremendous amount of work to rebuild a steam locomotive in a big shop and with anything less one can only wonder at the many problems encountered and solved. A leaking steam pipe in the smoke box is being repaired which is a difficult job at best. Note the lap-joint boiler seam and the brass jacket around the domes and cylinder. This is one of the locomotives used on the Mt. Pleasant Railroad and is in use at the Old Settlers Reunion each year. Courtesy of Harry Hall, 223 High St. S.E., Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102.



The engine is a 1908 Waterloo steam engine made in Canada. It is featured at the 'Pageant of Steam' at Canandaigua, New York, the second week of August each year.
