Weekend Steam: George Kester's Engines

 My nephew Josh just had his tenth birthday, and his Kester's Collectables engine this year is a beautiful green Huber.  Josh has been getting one per year for several years now; George Kester has his address in his Rolodex.
The Russel was his first one, then the Oil Pull, the Minneapolis, the Avery Yellow Fellow Separator, then the Avery Undermounted, and this year the Huber. 

These engines are made in Illinois by George Kester, and you would be hard pressed to find a nicer American-made toy for a kid.  You can Click Here, or the link on the left side to visit George's website.

Josh seems to like his engines. Great smile!

The scary thing that I just realized recently is that I am his GREAT-Uncle. His mother was born when I was in college in 1971. She and Josh's father are raising some good kids.
