These two came out of a different slide cartridge, which was unmarked and could be from a different show and year. Sorry again, the scanner's transparency adapter has a hard time with slides that are too dark or too light.

Possibly a half-scale Keck?


1/4 or 1/3 scale Greyhound

Here are some of the models from this year's Rough & Tumble show.

Here's a 1/2 scale Baker. I didn't see a sign on it, but it could be Jonas Stutzman's, which in that case would make it 5/8 scale I believe.


Case, 1/4 scale I believe


1/4 scale Case


A beautiful 1/4 scale Frick. I love the Case models, but this is one nice engine and it's good to see some variety. It sounded pretty good powering one of the biggest White Mountain ice-cream makers I've ever seen!!! LOL!

I thank Brad Kelley and Colin for the nice photos . . . makes my following pictures in need of improvement . . . I'm working on it!!!

Thumbing through my 2003 WMSTR photos, I thought I'd post these four.

The late N.B.Nelson built this 1/3 scale GAAR-SCOTT steam traction engine. I think he modeled it after the full size 25-75 GAAR-SCOTT that N.B. (Norman) and brother Chris owned?



The late Ellsword Grahn of Vergas, Minnesota used to own this 1/3 scale RUSSELL. A Mr. Forrestal of Moorhead, Minnesota built this engine (1982 WMSTR showbook). Referring to my 1987 WMSTR showbook, Patrick and Leola Cunningham of Fargo, N.D. bought it from the Ellsword Grahn estate.



The CASE model might be another engine N.B.Nelson built? (Help!)



Referring to my 1987 WMSTR showbook, they have this to say about this model steam locomotive:

The Henry C. Ortner Memorial Railroad gives an average of 12,000 rides during the 4 day reunion. The train began operating in 1981 after being restored by the usual group of anonymous WMSTR volunteer workers. The train includes the locomotive, 3 passenger cars, 600 feet of track, a water tower, bridge and storage building which is mounted over the tracks.

After going through my 2003 photos, I thought I'd post these three from my 2004 WMSTR folder.

Scale model of a CASE portable. (Don't know any more, as the 2005 showbook displays a photo of this engine, but no information?)



I'm sure most . . . if not all of these scale models were built by the late N.B.Nelson? (Help!)



That's our friend and fellow SMOKESTAKKER JLee feeding the threshing machine. I don't know who the young engineer is, that's firing a 1/3 scale ADVANCE built by N.B.Nelson?

Got to say, I don't know as I have ever seen a model of a portable before. Kind of neat. Good pics...

Hey Colin,

That is a nice model 110!...I really like the one Ansel Wattles built. The extensions really make it look good. It always pulled well on Butch's mill too. Hopefully, it will go to a good owner that knows how to maintain & work it well. I know Butch misses it!

Colin, Please give me a sense of scale for the model 110. How tall are the drivers on that model? That thing looks as big as some of the smaller traction engines like a 6 HP Russel. The scale model might be big enough to do some "real work".

Are you talking about the engine in Post #62? It appears quite small to me, as most 1/4 scales are. If you look in the bottom right corner of the picture you can see a pneumatic tire, looks like it's mounted on a small cart. It probably isn't much larger than the two 1/4 scale Case engines in my post above.

I have seen pics of a 1/2 scale Case 110 that was pretty huge, almost comparable to a small full scale engine.

Colin's on the road to ROLLAG but may check in if he can find a Case Computer somewhere.........
I have to say that 110 "model" is simply a MASTERPIECE of work.....
It would be fun to see some video of THIS one at work................

QUICK! Let us compliment these nice models (because they really are a work of art) before Colin comes back! ...wouldn't want him to know that we appreciate ALL makes of engines.......just may not prefer CASE!

Here's two photos of a 1/2 scale 110 h.p. CASE at the 2003 WMSTR in Rollag, Minnesota. Going by hearsay, it cost $35,000 to build?!





(NOTE: The sun was very bright when I snapped these photos . . . the camera and I both needed sunglasses!)

I wonder if this engine will be at the CASE Expo . . . sure is a beauty?!

Hi Gary,

It sure looks like Ansel Wattles' 110. Any clue if it was his? That bright blue jacket on the cylinder and the extension rims are the same.

Thanks!
Beth

Out of the slides I've finished scanning, so far I haven't seen any other pics of that Greyhound. There may be others of it in the slides that remain to be scanned. I will however do my best to get a better scan of that picture. I'll take a couple slides up to the professional photo shop and see if they can do a better job.

I do have another pic or two and a short video of the 1/4 scale Frick that was at R&T this year. I'll try to post them up sometime tonight. I might try to "You-tube" the video.

R&T also has another Frick in their model museum. I don't know if it was built by the same person/patterns as the one I posted above, but it looked very similar.

Also, I think the ad in Steam Traction for Oliver's Boilers says they have 1/2 scale boilers for the 110 model.

Hi all

Ansel's " little 110" IS NOT FOR SALE AT ALL .. Mona is learning to run this fine engine and i must add she is doing a good job at it. I wanted to buy it and i was shot down I was told NO NO NO ! Bob Oliver did build that boiler for Ansel.. from what i see Bob did an outstanding job on that boiler and Ansel did a bang up job on the rest of it ... Ansel was sure proud of that engine i am sure glad i had a chance to run it with him Yes Beth Butch does miss his old friend and engine very much it just does not look the same to see that fine mill with out Ansel and the 110 to run it but i bet when Mona get's that engine down she will give her hand at the mill
