This is 86 year old Roger Dillon the last guy to run the two engines when they where still in service in 1965. Roger worked at the station for about 10 years. He and a few others made a trip up here a while back to see the engine run. When it started up Roger lit up like a new star, and sat and watched it run for over an hour. He told lot's of story's about working at the Joy, Oh. station. The best one was, he told us that he lived about 10 miles (as the crow flies) and on a calm day he could here the two engines pounding away. Could you imagine living 2 miles away? the noise 24-7.

A little History I got from Roger. The two engine where not installed new at the Joy station, Roger said they came from somewhere in Pa. and my engine was moved to Joy in 1919 and then the other engine was moved in 1921. The engine did run 24-7 except when they where down for maintenance.

I also would like to thank everyone that helped with this project, Tim Sebastian (cylinder repair), Keith Billet (Piston Sleeve), Mike Murphy (help with hauling it home), Greg Johnson, Gray Stoner, Tarry Tanner, And of course the wife. If I missed anyone you can kick me later.
