My Friend Jim McIntyre Takes care of this old Erie. It is still running at about 70 PSI. It is Serial Number 28165 and dates to about 1888. The fluted water column and such on these old engines are really neat to see! I was about to say “They don’t make them like that anymore” when I realized that they do make ANY any more!

Here's a couple you won't see everyday.

The family's Keystone portable. Yes, it's for sale. I think they want $8K


A catalog cut showing the 20th Century Mfg Co portable... if anybody EVER sees one of these, PLEASE let me know!


I though I also had pix of the little Russell and Farquhar at Portersville, and the little Russell, Case and Birdsall at Pioneer, but they aren't on my hard drive.

First photo is in the 1880's of my great grandpa's threshing crew. He is on a portable Russell.

Second photo is of the portable Russell at Rollag this year.

Hello Mike!

Thanks for the pictures, This is the only Nagle portable I know of.
I seen pictures of one in Ohio years ago,but did not have the correct
engine. The Erie city Iron Works looks alot like the Nagle they could
havebeen conected.
Thanks Gary!

Here are a couple of early Haggert brothers items, Brampton, Ontario. They also made these as traction engines, early 1880s.
This one shows the early style with a balanced valve set-up! This type was built under license from a Professor J. E. Sweet out of Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.. Does anyone have any information on Sweet?
Haggert sold these as "Cornell" engines. I have one of their catalogues from about 1883 and they also show that they used a superheater in their engines!! This must have been one of the earlier uses of this appliance? Later, Haggert became J. M. Ross and Co and moved to St. Catherines, Ontario. Later models used a conventional flat valve arrangement.
There are a few Haggerts still around.

I found another picture of the Clark Dell's case portable G was speaking of. The hole in the crown sheet story is quite true (wont hold water )

First picture is the hole!

Second is arriving at Ontario Steam Heritage Museum from Dell auction sale.

Third is picture last week at New Years steam up. It was inside shop in steam. Someone asked in a past post about old boilers number (since this is a welded boiler now) There were no readable numbers that could be found on the original.
