Definitely working hard under a full head of steam!

I think it's neat how its working so very hard, and the safety valve still lifts a couple of times, that's a strong boiler 😉👍

AWESOME Bruce!!! Love the sound they make when working. Wonder what Kory Andersonís 150 Case would make...

Thereís a 40-140 Reeves near here that they belt up every year and I never get tired of watching.

Just think what those drivers would do to your Honda Civic :D

The extensions are being sold separate, so you might not have to worry as much about the width ;)

I'm quite sure that if I even attempted to pull the empty trailer (which could hold that engine) I will loose the transmission right there on the spot.
maybe FedEx will sponsor this steam engine and I would operate it for them 😉👍
