Weekend Steam II: Midwest Old Threshers 1987, Steam Traction Engines

 This video showed up on our YouTube feed tonight, and we had to take a look because we were there in 1987. It starts off giving me a glimpse of Stanley Mauser, and old friend and steam engineer. He shows up again briefly near the end of the video. We saw Otto Zwicki's little steam engine with a bunch of whistles, and at the 17:12 mark you will see Mr. Oberman's Port Huron engine. I'm helping out on the steering wheel and you will see a young Zeke at the 17:22 mark, riding on the back of the engine. Pretty neat, and totally unexpected.
