Seen on this month's back cover is a Watertown steam engine built in the 1800's in Watertown, New York. The engine was on a rock pile down near a swamp and the boiler was back of a barn obtained by George J. Paddock, current owner.
'It took a year to restore. It has new flues, all new plumbing, new safety valve, new injectors and new paint. The engine is 8 HP. It has New York State inspection certificate.'
Paddock, who lives at Route 1, Box 263, La Fargeville, NY 13656 says the engine runs very nicely.
