Congratulations to our Steam Team
The Altman & Taylor Rides again!  

A proud day for the WAAAM Steam Team who spent one year and over 800 hours restoring the Steam Tractor and met their goal to drive it in this years 4th of July Parade! This is a great reason to toot our own horn. Volunteers put a new meaning to letting a little steam off here at the museum.


Meet Jack, Donn, Jim, Joe and Larry during the Car Show and Swap Meet this Saturday. They will be stoking the fires again and blowing the horn, come give them a round of applause!

Another "Last of the Survivors" arrives at WAAAM. 

1929 Bull Stearman Speedmail. This plane is huge, has been donated and will fly once again soon. One of just seven built.   

This is a story we will tell in the August newsletter. But you can see it on display now.

as we assemble it and get ready to fly.  

Did I say it is huge?  The Bull Stearman hauls 1000 pounds of mail & 1 pilot
