This fine old steam engine sits outside of a cold storage facility in Wesley, ME. It was recently rescued from a salvage crew who wanted to remove it and cut it up for scrap metal. My “Oldman” (his word’s not mine) begged, pleaded, cried and whined to the powers that be to leave it in place where it has been for many years and where it is a popular point of interest to tourists and fans of vintage machinery. I applaud his efforts to save this fine old machine from the salvage yard and feel it was worth any groveling he had to do to accomplish it! A big accolade must be given to the powers that be (Nat) for allowing us to keep this little piece of Americana.
