Pamela,

We’ve had this request before (when the exhibit was in Chicago, and Now in Kansas City. . . .

You might contact Doug Klink with the Reliance Fire Co. Museum (http://reliancefiremuseum.org). They are located in Colorado, but they own/restored the steamer currently on exhibit in the Kansas City venue of “The Horse” exhibition.a

With that said, there are a fair number of steam fire engines in California. I don’t know them all, but You should start with the CSFA Steamer Team (http://www.csfa.net/csfa/calff/about_csfa/csfa_steamer/steamer_history.aspx). Dave Hubert is the lead and owns/restored — and operates — an ex-Reno Steam Fire Engine. Even if not displayed in the exhibit, a live-demonstration of this engine would make a wonderful one-day “special event.” Contact David Hubert vie his website: http://hubiepictures.com

If You’re still in need, you might also contact the LA County Fire Museum (http://www.lacountyfiremuseum.com/) — they have several steamers.

Good luck in your quest. Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

        Thanks for all of this info. David. I wrote to Mr. Hubert right away and will try the LA County Fire Museum as well. I think we overruled the Colorado steamer due to transport costs though. Thanks... more
