BROWNINGTON - The Old Stone House Museum hosted its annual steam and antique engine show this weekend, with loyal enthusiasts coming from all over New England.
Among those presenting were Herb and Dan Lewis, father and son, of Derby, who, along with Robert Calhoun of Charleston, worked for seven years to restore a late 1800’s steam engine, which was originally manufactured by Gillie Engine & Machine Co. of Tonawanda, NY. The engine is an 8-horsepower, vertical, 2-cylinder model that is wood fired.
As the men blew the steam whistle for enthusiastic fans, Bob Williams of the Antique Engine Association said, “A really great exhibit. Glad it made the show.”
Mark E. Amey came from Clarksville, NH, to display his wood-barreled cement mixer at the show. The mixer was powered by an intermittent-fired, 3-horsepower engine by Gallaway, using a flat belt. Mark said that keeping his machine in working order is a “labor of love” but well worth it to demonstrate the history of these engines and what they can do.
