Eric Sloane Museum
Kent CT

Roger got out to the country corner of Connecticut. We took the wee girls to the Eric Sloane Museum and the Antique Machinery Museum next door (last August, I am trying to catch up on my neglected blogging).

This is a lovely quiet museum out in the woods. Staff is so friendly. Roger got to play engineer with Isobel and Meta.

Lots of interesting stuff to see.
Here is Roger and Meta sliding back down hill on Argent Lumber Locomotive #4.

There are at least two trains, this one is inside and you get to climb in it and blow the whistle.. cover your ears!

Hawaii #5, a 1925 Baldwin steam locomotive.

There are lots of other interesting stuff too. Here is the Hubbard Steamscycle, handbuilt 1969-1973 by Arthur "Bud" Hubbards of Monroe CT.  Two cylinder, single-acting, 6 horsepower, 100cc displacement. Water tube, superheating coil, 100-600 psi. Fired by kerosene, vaporization burner. Bike frame German Maico 1956.

Oh, and there is a fabulous mineral collection...inside and this great pile of kid rocks outside!

Come on out...
Saturday, May 4, 2013 is CAMA's Spring Power-up Day.
Buy, sell, vendors and lots of fun.
