I have about forty engines, steam, gas and electric.

The Baker is made from scratch. The boiler is made from a piece of brass 12' x 18' long,1/16 thick. I rolled the brass to make the boiler. There are ten tubes in the boiler and over 100 pieces in each wheel. It is 20' long. I got the dimensions from one that is near where I live.

(Some color pictures of Mr. Howington's other engines appeared on page 28 of our February 1992 issue.)
