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,

1992.

ownership, the engine had spent some time at Williams Grove and at
