A PA "Half-Breed" Gas Pumping Engine

The historic old engine rests along Russett Road, described by its owner Danny Bragg, as a "Pennsylvania Half-Breed Pumper."

Bragg said the old engine was used at a well site back on a hill behind his residence, the Leonard Fowler place.

"It weighs tons," he said.

Bragg, a retired deep coal miner from Logan County, said the engine ran on steam or natural gas.

He says he has hopes of restoring the engine and making it operable.
