This is my Galloway Handy Andy. Unfortunately, I can't tell you how I found this engine in the woods or hiding behind someone's barn for years, as no such story goes with this engine.

I actually bought it from a fellow collector who had owned it at least ten years and was very aware of its value and desirability. After about three years of trying, I finally talked him into parting with it.

Although I haven't invested any blood, sweat and tears in restoring it, I still get tremendous pleasure in cleaning, running and showing this dandy Handy Andy around the Northeast.
