NTA most memorable experience

I had one of the most memorable experiences at NTA ever. After 38 years I finally caught up with my Grand- fathers Keck. Engine # 1743 owned by Coe Emmans of Mason MI. After introducing myself and conversation I was allowed to take the engine to the wood pile for fuel.:D An emotional moment happened. I was thrilled to pull the throttle. Grandpa never left me steer, fire, or pull the throttle, only sit there and touch nothing!
I was able to tour the grounds several times on this engine, nearly 3 hours worth.

Thanks much Coe!!! :D

:wave: David,
I certainly can relate to everything you said, I have vivid memories of being told, don't touch that, keep back, it is to hot, you will get burnt. At least I got to buy my Grandfather engine years later.

Glad you got the chance to spend some time on it.:cool:

:D,Mike

This was my first NTA visit. I greatly enjoyed meeting Butch Biesecker and photographing his usually spotless 22-65 Keck Gonnerman. I also enjoyed meeting Trevor Ives from England and listening to his thoughts about the show.
