To celebrate Sully’s birthday we asked family to give Sully a gift of a fun day out together instead of toys. My parents wanted to take Sully to Strasburg Railroad in Lancaster, PA. We got lucky because when we were visiting in addition to their old steam locomotive, Thomas the Tank Engine was in town with his friend Percy as part of Day out with Thomas!
While we were in Loganville I helped out with family projects -cutting the grass, pulling an old plow off the tractor, mulching Grandma Ness’s garden and painting the tractor shed roof. There was time for fun though, I asked Grandma if I could fire up Grandpa Ness’s old Farmall A tractor from 1942, she said I could. The battery was dead, but it started on the first hand crank!
There was also time to fire up an old hit or miss engine.
