Default Ottaway engine is "born again"!

I could have been knocked down with a feather when Sheree emailed me this and a couple of other photos of the Ottaway engine that I believe was used at Joyland there in Wichita, KS. I told Sheree, I knew Harold Ottaway. The engine is part of the rolling stock of the Eaton & White Oaks Railway. Gary

There were a number of these built by Harold & Herb's dad. The last I knew the park steamer was still in a storage building on the grounds. Several years ago it was used in a display at a local Lawn & Garden Show. At that time it was in rough shape. I know that there are at least three possible four engines here in the Wichita area including a ten wheeler. There is also a very active group in the Topeka area that have track and run on a regular basis.

Jeff,
If she did take a picture of the 1936 Ford, she didn't send it to me.

John,
Thanks for straightening my excitement out!
