Just thougth I would chime in on the Pontiac Show. We finally were back after 3 years with Smith Engine #1. Got a new code boiler under it and good to go. It is amazing how well it steams. Actually had to use the draft door - never had to before. Dad reworked the valve gear a little and it ran like it never has before. Had 12 big engine and a few models. Hopefully we can reverse that trend and get some more engines back

The first pic is Smith Engine #1. The second is a nice N&S that was new to the show. I forgot to get the info on it

I got a pair of 24" steel wheels for the 5E tractor project here on Saturday. Seen at Pontiac is Paul Harmon cranking up a newly aquired FM water pumping setup. Also a pic of one of my new favorite tractors. Are those standard wheels for that TC or optional?
