    Evening;
    New modeler here. Heard from a friend that a Steam engine blew-up at the Medina County Fair in Ohio over the weekend. In the blast four people lost their lives. Could anyone confirm this. I have family there, haven't been able to get them on landline. than again I know other family from out of town is in visiting. Mostly curious of the events.
    Thanks.

    Ken, look on the "Rail Fanning" Forum, under the Topic: Articulated, on page 13 & 14, and see a discussion about the Tractor that blew its boiler.

    Ahhh.... Now i know the truth. Thanks for the point out. And people wonder why others get upset when they got a phone up to their ear while their driving. These fellows lost their lives from not paying attention.

    Comfort wishes to the families left behind. :(
