hi All
IN July 1862 Joseph Renshaw Brown brought his mighty Steam wagon to Nebraska City, This monster of iron is said to weight several thousand pounds. Bridges on her route west, she was to pull trains of freight wagons, were constructed to carry 20 tons. This engine moved from the steam boat to the levee on her own power, and up main street which is even today steeper then the St Louis levee. She was a $7,700.00 failure as she only went three miles of a 563 mile trip to Denver when a vital part of the machine broke and there she set of years and years.
