Butch hosted a visit by myself and a friend last week.  We spent a wonderful evening looking and listening to many intriguing stories and engines.  The Blackstone is a great find.

Thank you Butch,

Bob

A big horizontal single Blackstone turned up out here on Vancouver Island recently.  Owner was getting it going last I saw.  Had about a six inch bore IIRC and flywheels about four foot diameter.
