Tod Engine Project

The Tod 34" x 68" x 60" cross compound steam engine was donated by North Star Steel Ohio in April, 1996 to the Jeannette Blast Furnace Preservation Association, Inc., 1941 Wick Campbell Road, Hubbard, Ohio 44425, (330) 719-3233. The engine is being dismantled by volunteers and is funded entirely by donations from interested individuals and companies. Our plans are to re-erect the engine, restore it to operating condition and operate it on special occasions.
