Mr. Teeter had one in WV that was really neat, and he called it a "road locomotive" and it brought great joy to many folks around Franklin. It was a neat engine that looked like a train, but it was built on a bus frame with a Soule engine and a Frick boiler. I think he told me it would go as fast as 50 or 55 mph. It always seemed a little strange as a kid to see a "train" with a steering wheel!
Eston found the boiler (with no engine) at a sawmill site near his home where it had been abandoned. He said it took him about eight years to gather all the components and put them together.wasn't the Teter engine put together to basically get a portable boiler around to tobacco bed steaming jobs faster?
