| March/April 1958

A homemade steamer. This engine was built by Mr. Bahre and his son in their shop in McPherson from parts gathered here and there. Mr. Bahre said the machine was patterned after a Case engine. He said that when he started on the project a number of friends became interested and when they had a pipe, a fitting, a wheel or something they thought he could use they would bring it to his shop. From this collection and the items Bahre made himself the steamer grew into a machine that actually runs. The boiler, for instance, was made from 18 in. casing, the flues are IV2 inch tubing, the wheels are drill wheels cut down, there are some tractor gears and other miscellaneous parts. It weighed 1730 pounds.
