Ruston Homsby engine

Gordon Hume, treasurer of the Ontario Steam & Antique Preservers Association in Milton, Ontario, Canada, sent this photo, saying, 'Thought you might be interested in this picture of a 500 HP Ruston Homsby engine owned by Walter Deadman. It's the winner of Best Restored Engine Over 3 HP at our 1992 Steam-Era show, held Labour Day weekend. Look closely at the picture and you will see Walter receiving the trophy.

Andrew Wahl, Rt. 1, 522 North St., Brandon, Wisconsin 53919, sent this photograph of his son Mike operating their recently purchased 1922 Model K 15 HP Farquhar engine. The picture was taken at the Pickett, Wisconsin, Steam and Gas Engine Show in September 1992.

This early 1920s Frick Eclipse, owned by Menno F. Stoltzfus, is pictured hard at work steaming tobacco beds on a farm just outside Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Stoltzfus bought the 8 x 10 inch bore and stroke engine in working order in 1991. Prior to Stoltzfus' ownership, the engine had spent some time at Williams Grove and at Rough & Tumble, Kinzers. Photo taken in the spring of 1992 by Gail Knauer.
