I have to ask....."Why do they have a steam engine in a furniture store?" ....other than because they could? Did they have a sawmill setup for it?

I also saw an old car & I think, a gas engine in the background of the slide show.

What kind of place was that?? Sure would have been interesting to visit....but at $49,000, I think the engine is a bit too pricey...for me.

I see the youtube partly cab of steam engine in furniture store.. Sounds like a furniture owner try to sell steam engine as a decoration in living room.
Folks, better ask your wife a permission to set in your newly spacious living room.
Maybe your wife bug you wanting to use steam engine in living room!

NO I am not interested leave the engine as a furniture.
Hopefully the price is right and needs a new home a living history demonstration at show.

Little Creek? 1887? "Better than the tractors in museums"?

Don't let the CIA (Case Injuneers of America) get a hold of that info. They'd never let the Advance guys live it down.

Come on down folks, we have the best selection of the finest preserved American primatives around. And we are slashing prices.....No payments and no entrest for the first 24 months! And we will even through in a bedroom set that you can put in your house, or break up for kindling to steam your new beauty home!

I am just teasing, it looks like a nice engine and I hope it finds a new home!
