Sad to lose a good man. But, 91? I should be so lucky to live that long.

Subject: Fwd: stolen saito v4pr steam engine from wmstr
Date: Fri, 7 Sep 2012 18:16:34 -0600
Please be on the look out for this engine. I hate to hear of this
kind of incident. It did happen at another model show a few years
ago....the engine was returned anonymously! If someone has this
engine and is feeling guilty I will even be the go between if they
would like to return it. Or if some wants to leave the engine in a
safe location and make an anonymous call and let someone know where it
can be picked up.
My phone number is 306 634-3214 ask for Kelly
Kelly, if you would forward this out on your mailing list i would
appreciate it. Good to see you at WMSTR! Steve
Hello, to all from Steve Knutson28484 Highway 10Lake Park MN 56549
218-483-3469 I had the unfortunate event of my little Saito V4PR steam
engine stolen off the back of my exhibit table in the Model Engine
Building at the Labor Day Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion
Sat. 9-1-2012 about 10:00 AM. I had just taken it out of my storage
bin to show a fellow model enthusiast (do not know his name, a fellow
with reddish slight beard and red bandana_to this fellow_if you see
this ,please get in touch with me with your contact info) Soon after i
was distracted for a bit to the end of the tables, and when i returned
to put it away, it was gone. There was only a small window of
opportunity to steal this, as i rarely display it without being
present, mostly to show to someone whom i know would be interested in
it , its value and rare nature. All things considered, it seems quite
premeditated, not random theft. Someone obviously wanted this engine,
as much as i did, before i finally found one. I would guess the only
way to obtain one now, would be to steal it, especially one in such
pristine new condition.
Please let me know if you see one show up, or for sale, however i do
not think the intent was to steal and sell, but rather to have one in
possession, as most spectators, would not know what it even is. Really
hurts my faith in humanity. See the pics attached. These are not
actual pics of my engine, but rather I have taken them off the
internet, as i never took any pics of mine. Mine was brand new, never
used, never even run on air. I have the box and instructions. There
was not even any tarnish on it. There was no drive dogbones/coupler or
other, just plain output shaft. I think the displacement oiler was red
on the top, like the one in the pic, but i cannot remember for sure. I
have had it for many years, taking it out once a year to look at labor
day weekend with the rest of our stuff. I would ponder at this time
what i would use it for someday, the boat or whatever i would put it
in. I had not even looked at too much, satisfied mostly to just have
one, and savorying it for the future. Very bummed those dreams are
dashed. I cannot imagine anyone being able to enjoy this stolen item.
Thanks to whomever's pic or vids i used to describe.
