Steam engines seem to hold a fascination for boys of all ages.

Elmer E. Adams, Fairfield, who was 74 on Jan. 27, has never lost his fascination for things to run by steam, an interest he has had since he saw his first steam engine at 14.

As a small boy, he was constantly imagining machinery running. He tied string around boxes, adding clock wheels to make them run.

'And then one day I went to the slate quarry with my brother and dad to help pull a steam engine home on a sled,' said Adams. 'From the minute I saw it, I knew I had to see what made it run and it just had to be mine.'
