Theres a small portable that had a field conversion done to it to make it self driving somewhere near Kansas City. I think a club owns it up there but its in such poor shape that no one has really tackled it. Parts have been slowly rounded up. No engine number though, and best we can tell it was made somewhere in the 1880s-1890s. Pretty small engine too-maybe 13 hp? Its hard to say. Didnt know if you had it or if anyone knew of it.

Gentlemen, I believe the Danny Roen 35 horse Nick is owned by a pair of gents out of Minnesota. Iíll check on it this week.

Ben, Our Nick is a 13 HP single side mount serial number 12264, a 1917 model.

Would love to have a copy of your owners list, Iím also trying to prove the year built to the Oklahoma boiler inspectorís. Anything you have will help!

Also any N&S original literature that mentions the original boiler pressure. Seems that OK has a bunch of new examiners that don't trust their own past documents. I suspect that it's just another way to side line hobby boilers.

The Roen 35 is still in Mn. Apparently the owners are lacking the time to restore it currently, but sounds like it will be ready to go in a couple years.

I purchased recently a 10hp traction engine from the original family. the serial number tag is gone, but we know it was purchased in 1881 and the casting numbers put it between 1881 and 1883. I know it isn't much, but if you want it added go ahead

Does anyone know if N&S places a SN any where else besides the one on the smoke box? Those are mostly missing and have fallen off as the bolts that hold them on rust off on the inside .
