'Above: Don Gough, founder of the Kakabeka Tired Iron Club, with his 12 HP Fairbanks-Morse Model C at the Kakabeka Legion. The engine is throttle-governed and was used to drive a compressor in Musquash, New Brunswick. The compressor supplied air to blow a fog horn. Don traveled to New Brunswick in September 2007 to locate the lighthouse and compressor, but all that remains is the foghorn’s distant echo somewhere on the ocean. '
