I guess I have always been interested in engines. My former boss, now retired, was a steam engineer. He started building small models of steam engines in his basement. It kind of rubs off. My collection of Hopper engines started a few years ago when I was fortunate enough to obtain an International LA model. Since that time I have obtained a few others. The most rare in my opinion is an 'Empire' made by the Empire Cream Separator Company of Bloomfield, N. J. Another one is a Flint and Walling. I only know of one other like it around here. I found it in an orchard a couple of summers ago. The son of the owner said it would never run again. I'm happy to say he was wrong.

I also enjoy 'Gas From the Tramp Preachers Tank'. I think this is something we also need more of this day and age.
