Boehler to showcase vintage steam engine
Roger Boehler, who farms south of Golden Valley, is powering up his 1914 Case steam engine this week for inspection before bringing it to the Good Ol' Taylor Days.
The machine is patterned after a locomotive boiler and weighs approximately 12½ tons. It's run by wood or coal.
"It takes about an hour to build up steam in the boiler before its ready to operate it," he said.
