Visited the Lambton Heritage Museum thursday with my wife and kids. Great place to stop if you are in the Grand Bend area. Lots to see and a little of everything for all interests. Local history, manufacturing, furniture, glass, medieval times and the pioneer village fully stocked with agricultural history. I have attached a few pictures of interest.......

They also have a 1/2 scale 20hp George White built by George Patterson of Sarnia in 1977. It is a wonderful looking scale traction engine. The museum currator mentioned that some time ago there was discussion surronding the engine being sent for refurbishment. I believe Jeff Searson had maybe offered the time and manpower for the restoration with the museum paying for the 'parts'. I would be interested in knowing how the agreement fell apart and if there is any effort in place to keep the engine at the museum. I understand the museum does not have a great interest in the tractors and steam engines and it would be a shame to see a local built scale engine disappear! I think the little George White would look great along side of Jeff's Goodison. Maybe a 'Searson family stalker' could shed some light on the subject......

Here are some pictures of the George White.....

Thanks for posting this thread Jim. I´ve driven by the museum several times but never had time to stop. Will have to make a point of it next time! Out of curiosity, is there also a large stationary steam engine at the museum?

Yes! I believe it is a Waterous built in Brantford, Ontario. The original boiler face and door are permanently mounted to the floor along with the engine and flywheel. They seem to be in rough stages of aligning the dynamo generator and original electrical panels. The display building they are house in seems more like a storage area right now. They have their steam engines, threshers and a couple tractors jammed in the back and blocked off with junk!!!!!!
