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



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...).

http://www.littleloghouseshow.com/general-information/



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.



I have a video of them running that I'll have to post.

Here's the Engine Shed (one of the engine buildings).








Here it is at the Saw Mill


The Saw Mill is powered by this Case.



Here's the Federal Dam train depot.


The engine is sitting on the communications office counter. Note the telegraph equipment in the background.

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!

Okay, I will place my order for a micro Ringmaster kit with Roger this week so I have something to fly it with. Thanks.
Rusty

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.

Any updates?

Great pictures by the way Marleysky! Thumbs Up

I think about the engine every so often but forget to post asking for an update.

I still have it. Want to make one more excursion with it to the Air-Zoo, in Kalamazoo. Then send it on to the next in line. ...whoever that is....are you ready?
