Default Steam photos - Alexander 2009

I've posted a random collection of images of Case, Baker, Farquhar, Minneapolis and Buffalo-Springfield steam at work (and playing!) at Alexander this past weekend here:

Special thanks to Steve and Brian Harris for letting me use the Minneapolis' footplate as a photo platform at the plowing demo.

Thank you Bob. I know you were there, but I have not met you as yet. Steve Harris is a Staker. Case 441 was there and spent a lot of time driving a tram. His wife helped me on the gates a great deal and also helped my wife in the club store.
Have not met any of the other Stakers who said they were going.

All four days were good weather wise. Record gate receipts.

Dave - No doubt our paths crossed more than once at Alexander last weekend!

Will you be visiting the Fall Festival at Harris Steam Farm this Sunday? If so let's make it a point to meet...

Bob

Alexander is not just about steam. There's all manner of other fascinating stuff - farm tractors, earthmoving equipment, stationary engines, generators, trucks, railroad equipment, pumpkin launchers, etc. - to see and watch in operation.

A few representative images exhibits and displays are posted here:

Alexander is an excellent show!

Excellent pictures Bob! It was a pleasure to meet you. I got a good laugh at your shot of the back of the Baker as we were going past the "childern at play" sign. How appropriate! Thanks, Jon

The stationary boiler in the photos. Does anyone know the make of it and how is it built to have the stack come out the side of it? I saw a Lookout boiler at Somerset a few weeks back that looked similar, But did not get to talk to the owners. Thanks, Richard

Richard, If your refering to the stationary boiler on a skid outside the buildings with the small engines around it, it is a Lookout. Thanks, Jon

Thanks very much. How do the flues run in that boiler?
My Lookout has the stack on top with flues from top of firebox
to the top of the boiler.

No flues, tea pot style boiler. Nick keeps joking asking if I brought his flue brush.
