| September/October 1963

Here is a picture, taken about 1910 or 1912, of an engine I ran for 6 years in Alberta, Canada. In the picture I am peering from the cab window. We are pulling 10 plows, enough discs to double disc it. The drill seeds it and the harrow double harrows it, changing the land from virgin prairie to a seeded field as smooth as a garden.

The engine is a double Rumely, 36 HP, 175 lbs. steam. I first ran this engine mostly night shift for others and then bought it and ran it a while. Later I sold it but ran it for 2 years. It was a wonderful engine but it succumbed to the scrap dealer during the war.
