Dennis Shimming, P.O. Box A, Lewellen, NE 69147, sent this photo of three avid engine collectors sawing up a winter's supply of wood at his place. From left to right, they are Glenn Moreland and Eddie Thiemann  from North Platte and Jim Delahunty from Ogallala, all in Nebraska. The engine is a 6 HP McCormick Dearing Type M, in original condition. It was purchased from the estate of the late Carl Priesner of Ogallala, and runs like brand new. It was built in 1934.
