In October I went on a trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and made an excursion up to Ball’s Falls for their Thanksgiving Festival. There were a lot of great machines on display from the era this blog concentrates on. I’ll be uploading videos of these as individual posts so that if you know any details about each machine they can be added in the comments and discussed.

The video I made was very short (I’ll know to take longer video in the future) so I edited to have the video play at full speed once and then play in slow motion so you can see the details of the action.

This is a 1910 Hit and Miss engine that was on display. I found a description of this engine on Wikipedia…
