Default Northwest Thresher Co

Lately the Northwest Thresher company in Stillwater, MN, has peaked my interest. How many Northwest engines survived?

I don't know how many still exist but there is one in the Jerred Ruble collection at Forest City, Iowa. I believe he bought it at Steam Engine Joe's (Rynda) auction.

The Northwest and Giant engine From Rynda's went to Ken Eder unless Jerred recently purchased one from the family. I had a running count of Northwests at one point only a handful remain. Much like the Aultman-Taylors the boilerplate was pretty thin from the factory. So if you do find one chances are the boiler is shot.

There used to be a Northwest sitting by Spooner WI. It changed hands last fall.

I checked with Jerred, and I was wrong about the Northwest. Tim in right as to the location of the Stillwater built engines from the Rynda sale. I stand corrected.

I have the remains of a 14 horse Minnesota giant. I am actually going after the boiler this summer and parts we couldn't get out.
Here is the thread..
