Two men, nearly a world apart, find commonality in engines

Sometime in the late 1990s I became good friends with an engine collector in Sint Annaparochie in northern Holland. We met through the Internet, and in 2000 Harry Terpstra came to visit me. During his visit we attended shows in Oregon, Washington and California, and visited many collectors in those states as well as Idaho and Montana. We also visited British Columbia and Nevada. This first tour became known as the "Hell On Wheels" tour by our friends on the Internet since we did all this in a 10-day period, and we tried to visit a couple collectors each day or attend a show. An average day started early, involved driving hundreds of miles and ended with a late dinner before going to bed.
