    Default Video of a young Harve Woods

    Courtesy of Dave Statter:

    An interesting video find. A DC response from long ago caught on film.




    I think I see Harve on Engine 28

    About 16 seconds into the clip.

    Harve invented fire to give him something to do.
    Harve invented water to put out the fire when he got bored with it.
    Harve is immortal!

    Ergo, Harve also invented the explorer/junior program.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Talking Hi Guys...............

    Sorry I didn't get here sooner..... This time of year is busier than hell for me, between work and Motorsports........


    Mike, Thank You. That was a trip watching that. One of the Guys on the Tall thing working on the Trolley Car Wires might have been my Great Uncle, who worked for the Streetcar Company...... I wasn't on Engine 28 though, I already had the best job in the Department: Day Work guy on the Floodlight Unit........

    Whereas I always tend to turn conversations into fishing, Harve has a unique talent for turning any thread towards tractor pulls.. I bet that tractor could pull a bass boat like it was nothing!

Anyway look closely at the back of the engine.Yessir folks there he is young Chief Woods feeding the firebox on one of first self propelled Merryweather Steam Pumper Engines.
