Default Coolspring Feature Engines for 2011 & 2012

The Coolspring Power Museum will be featuring engines built in the State of New York in June of 2011. The Museum will be featuring engines Built in Ohio and celebrating 125 years of Foos Engines in June of 2012. You New York Engine fans have 8 months to get your engines ready to display. Like wise Built in Ohio and Foos Engine collecters you have 20 months, so get to work and be ready for June 2012. The Museum will have speakers for both events on Friday evening.

Dr Paul Harvey who first diagnosed Foos Fever says there is still no known cure! A good dose of New York Engines may help carry you throught to the Built in Ohio/Foos event in 2012.


In preparation for the Built in Ohio/Foos event in June of 2012, I will be posting Built in Ohio Engine trivia questions each month. So here goes the first Built in Ohio Engine trivia question.

What Ohio Engine Builder built a 50 HP engine in 1919 that was not sold until August 6th, 1947. Answer to be posted in November.

Preston,

Looking forward to the New York engine feature, it may take me 8 months to select a few from the collection to bring. I'm open to any suggestions on what people would like to see.

Don, I hope you will be able to bring out the 25 Special Electric Foos! Who knows, maybe we can get a full set lined up! What a great photo op! I know someone who has a really nice small one. All we need now is to fill in the in between sizes. - Wayne

I'm guessing Foos, they did make a 50HP, and it seems to me that they were still making the 50Hp in 1919, but i'm not sure if that's a guess or I read it.

PS I think we're hoping to bring the 12Hp hit n miss Mietz & Weiss next year. I want to bring the little one too, but have to do a little convincing...

Jonathan, I have an actual postcard that I showed Preston. He thought it was a 75 h.p. FOOS in the original location. It also had the BIG pot muffler. It was HUGE. It even showed the air start set-up.
