Thumbs up Re: i found an engine dreaming about a house

I've seen higher prices per acre just for bare land around here.

Add in the cabin and out buildings and the view AND the steam engine, and that $1,500.000.00 is a hell of a bargain.

Especially after dalmationgirl gets that railroad built around it.

And with a lakefront, I would put a steam boat on it, and host regattas.

I really hate to dash cold water your way, but there is a caption on that picture and a few of the others stating "Photo of area not of property". Does this mean that the engine is merely nearby?......PD

The picture got on there by accident. Was just in a group of photos that they had. The engine is not on that property like you said.
