Friday (out of) steam 7/23/10

26 hours at work Thursday/Friday. Out of steam today so enjoy the Number 9 from Midwest Central Railroad in Mt Pleasant, IA

I bet Sam is familiar with the narrow gauge railroad.

I dig the Maine 2 and a half footers. Nice to see more narrow gauge stuff!

Stan Matthews brought the Number 9 from California to Mt. Pleasant in 1966, and I wrangled a ride in the cab that year. What a beautiful machine!

Thanks for the background, Sam.

If you love steam, by rail or on the farm, Midwest Old Threshers is the place to be come Labor Day.
