It's finally time for this engine to get moving! (exactly a year later  Paranoid )

Follow The World's Smallest Traveling Engine! 20160735

This past weekend I took a trip out to the "Little Log House Pioneer Village" power show. It is held on the last full weekend of July. The property is filled with buildings that the owner moves and restores. Most of the buildings are "rescued" from being demolished. The insides of the buildings are decorated with related period authentic items. Many people bring their classic cars, tractors, engines, farm equipment and other collectibles to display and demonstrate. At select times during the day, they put on "wild west" bank robbery and jail break reenactments. This year they held a WWII reenactment (if I recall other years included Civil War reenactments, Vietnam War reenactments, WWI reenactments...).

Anyway, I figured what better place to bring an engine than an engine show? It was probably the smallest engine there.

Here's the World's Smallest Traveling Engine with the Kenyon Power Plant that served Kenyon, MN from the 1940s to the 1990s. The engines were out of WWI battleships. Zoom in on the picture to read the sign. These are probably the largest engines there.

Looking from this view, the counter is on the left side.

Here's the engine with WWII Jeeps, tanks and quonset huts.

This is just a very small fraction of it all, I probably should've took more pictures but I was too busy taking it all it myself Very Happy

The little engine got the attention of a few guys who spotted me taking pictures of it, most of them knew of Cox engines but never seen one so small.

It will be going to Jason next, and after that it depends on who is ready for it!

Nice Rusty! Are you going to be ready to go after Jason?

I really think Cox International and or Ex Model Engines should be a vendor out there with a flying circle. Hell, I'd help run it! Some of the guys from the forum could come out and put on some flying shows. If I had the $$, I'd do it myself...seriously. This show and the Back to the 50's car show (one of the largest classic car shows in the US) at the MN state fairgrounds would be great places to setup a Cox engine stand. Something I've been thinking about for awhile.

Hi Jacob. I'd really rather be down on the list a bit. Let me see how soon I can get my model, as Roger has to work it into his schedule to cut it for me. He hasn't been logged in for a month, but I PMd him last night. Then when I get it in hand I can get an idea when I'll be ready to fly it.
Thanks,
Rusty

Well fellas,

At long last it's finally on the move! Rene should receive the engine Friday and hopefully he has some good plans for it.

As for me, I was only able to verify operation and get a reliable run out of it. So I would like to stay on the list as written and receive it back so I can post a video of me flying with it.

Doh! she is sitting on a place of importance on my workbench. I do have intentions of taking her on a road trip to Kalamazoo and visit the “Air-zoo” to get a few more pictures.
But, If the next person in line is ready and wants it I can pack her up and send out post haste. Otherwise she’s being stored in a cool dry place! (Tom Petty)

Yup, I still have her. If the next in line ( pkrankow) is ready and waiting, I can pack and ship her out tuitsuite.  Otherwise,I plan on taking a small road trip and take her thru the  “AirZoo” in Kalamazoo. Here’s a sample of where I want to take her:

If they guys in the southern states are ready and its warm enough for them to get r done then it would make sense to do that to keep it moving. I realize it got a slow start and that maybe set a precedence. Getting that little guy started in cold weather is near impossible without a hair dryer on it for warm up.

Pushing 35 degrees Celsius in the shade here, so running the little beggar wouldn't be an issue in these parts, but I'm not on the list as postage costs are just too inhibitive out here.  I know I've had some generous members previously offer to help, but having had no real experience with Tee Dees of any size I woudn't feel confident with it.  I'd much rather practise on an engine of my own than run the risk of damaging this one.  Now if we were to do this with a Babe Bee  Babe Bee .049 , that would make all the difference.  No insurance, minimal packaging, easily repaired or replaced if something happened
