Weekend Steam

Many years ago, at a long forgotten estate auction, the Mrs and I bought three parts catalogs in a box of books.  I know nothing about Leader steam engines and threshers, and a quick search on the internet does not turn up much.

The fellow who had these books must have been in the threshing business for many years, because the books show a progression of engines from the era of web stackers, and then larger engines that were necessary to run threshers with wind stackers.

These are good looking engines, and I think they are pretty rare today.  This link will take you to a photo on Smokstak of a Leader engine at a show fifty years ago.
