….old paraffin steamers keep on burnin’!
Fly wheels spinning on this Blackstone paraffin burning steam engine. I spoke to the owner at the Co. Down Steam and Traction Engine Club Rally at Greyabbey co Down, 14 August 2011, who informed me this old girl he has owned for over one quarter of a century, turned 100 years old on the day before. Built to drive threshers , she would have been towed farm to farm with a pair of horses.
Big Wheels Keep On Turning ..
