Oh! You are such a card Robbie me ladGee and Beth:
Port Huron's are poetry in motion,..............................cause they're,.........................LongFellows .
How about a photo of your brother Dean's 19 Port Huron at Wauseon?
...and, just couldn't resist posting a picture of your 16 Baker while it was at Wauseon too!
This engine appears to be a 26 horse simple engine, same boiler. Great picture. All great pictures. In my opinion it's hard to find a better looking engine than a Port Huron. I may be a bit biased though.Oh! You are such a card Robbie me lad
Here are a couple more 1907 "Thresherman" pix. A 32 pulling 10 Cockshutt plows and then a testimonial. Not sure if the testimonial goes with the engine pictured? The engine is a single??? What gives Beth?
Ray,I know nothing of Ports. Side mounted, wet bottom? How about straw burners? Were those cast drivers good? Was the 32 the biggest? What was the smallest, and how many of the different sizes were made? Did they make separators, hullers, sawmills etc…..? How about gas tractors? C’mon you Port-Huron fans, get to braggin’ It’d also be nice for us uninformed to hear the problems with Port steamers. Were they built with thick boilers or relatively thin? What lead to the demise.
Very interesting so far
Sure, I'd be game to take the old girl for a spin or workout!I snapped these photos of this PORT HURON # 7621 at WMSTR on September 1, 2006.
Maybe when Beth visits Rollag she'll operate this engine?
