Engines

242 Dupont Street Johnstown, Pennsylvania 15902

Coolspring Power Museum, seven miles north of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, along Route 36, endured scattered showers for the spring show.

The museum maintains several barns and pavilions of permanent displays and engines on loan. Display engines range in size from single cylinder hit and miss up to their latest working specimen, the 1913 four-cylinder 300 HP Miller.

A large field for exhibitors and merchants is available for show and tell, buying and selling.

We are going to walk you (hypothetically speaking) through the field area, and save the museum displays for later. Let's stop at a food stand first and get a lemonade and some curly fries. Bring along your gas engine encyclopedia, and let's go for a stroll. These are some, but not all, of the old iron brought out today by the hobbyist and merchants:
