Default Play, glorious play

Just 2 would do. Heck. Bill Kelley, Ed Smith, and I figured out how we (or any) three alone could run the Delta Queen.

It's so cute, if it was cheaper, I'd buy it. Never got to see one of those big old walking beam engines in action. Went on one that was a ferry at San Francisco, no longer operating at the time, and was astounded at the size of the cylinder. About as big around as a silo. I could not find the Boats and Harbors listing on line. If it burns wood, great. Could even make money with it, but only in the summer.
