Review of Coal Smoke in the Heartland DVD

Take a nostalgic trip to a simpler time when steam power was "state of the art" on the farms and in the sawmills of the country.

Watch men at work running a steam-powered saw mill, check out the power runs on the dynamometer and get into the swing of things with the Darke County Steam Threshers Association.

You'll see the only operating C. Aultman "Double Star" undermount engine in the world and the only known operating 25-horsepower Baker "Counter Flow" engine in the world! and both of them are worked HARD!
