My father took these photographs for me because I can remember this engine as a child. He took them for me because I try to attend the National Pike Days show in Brownsville, PA, but it seems like the engine shows up only when I do not attend and miss the show for some reason. When I do make it, the engine does not............

I really like this engine because of the bar stock crosshead and the drive shaft. It is also a model that you do not see a lot of at a show. I think the Lancasters build close to 30 scale model traction engines, but could someone please confirm the actual amount? Are the Lancater brothers still alive?

Thank you!

Thank you!
I found a few photos of the engine on the Dover site.

Casemaker,

I just found this thread. I'm not to far from where this extremely rare JD steamer is located. The owner had it and several tractors listed for sale on Craigslist. I was interested in it until I saw the price and condition. Not being much of steam guy yet I definitley did not want in ove rmy head. Did you ever make it up there play with it any?

Joe

If it would have been a Reeves or Russell, of the same scale, I could have used the other side of that baker fan.>>> hahahaha!

Ok, I can't resist this one... are you sure it's not just the wind blowing against the Baker fan that's spinning the Case?!? ;-)

Joe,
I know I had the same feelings about the engine....just a shame...I understand it has been like that for years.... I thought about offering to clean it up, then free it up and for some running time... it needs a gov and a throttle valve for starters...
