Tuesday Torque: Take Your Dramamine!

This Blakeslee sideshaft engine is more than a century old, and is extremely rare.  It was retired during the nineteen-sixties, and is now being shown by the grandkids of the man who saved it.  I just wish they would scotch those wheels.

A Tennesseean I knew always said that instead of "Chock" the wheels.

Just looked it up it's "Middle English." Probably common in southern Appalachia.
