The Eclipse Corliss Engine Group Classic

Classic Steam Engine Engineering The Eclipse Corliss Engine Group Classic Engineering Steve; You're right! A lot of people from local and northeastern clubs were in to see it, and that's just what they did! Museums, too! Local historical society, same thing. Then, to add insult to injury, I had one fellow from a well known steam club go up one side of me and down the other when I mentioned we were recovering the engine, he was mad as hell. I had to hear how his club had enough money to get any engine they wanted, and if that one was worth getting they would have gotten it, how we were spoiling the chances of other groups getting engines because we didn't know what we were doing and we were going to give such groups a bad name when we failed. Needless to say, I've never joined. Unbelievable. The good part is that it turns out he is not representative of the attitudes in general in that group, and there are many fine fellows there doing good work too! But there's always gotta be one! - Jim Mackessy The Eclipse Corliss Engine Group Classic Engineering
