Default Skinner steam engine & generator @ Boonville Mo.

A few pics of a Skinner steam engine at Boonville Mo. Our show is the 4th-7th of Sept. Hope some of you can make it. Usually a fair amount of steamers. Do a search on the Back to the Farm reunion at Boonville Mo. to see some of the pictures I posted of the steamers that were present last year. Thanks, Bob...

Am trying to get to go to this show this year. Went back in 2006 and was pretty impressed with it then, nice big show with a good flea market.

At the moment this engine is not running, however it is in excellent condition though the automatic oiler is missing. We have some boilers and we are looking at the possibilities. It would be cool to have it powering some of our show. If anyone has any info or parts,(or the correct oiler) please let me know. Thanks, Bob...

There is one dual flywheels Skinner 14 inch currently running at Midwest Old Threshers reunion Mount Pleasant Iowa. I saw it running today in museum A. Gonna take some pictures and video in the morning. It looks exactly like this except the generator.
