The New England Wireless and Steam Museum is once again firing up the big boiler and connecting dozens of steam engines, large and small. It’s an incredible sight; you’ll see tabletop steam engines, huge industrial steam engines, and even some steam powered vehicles. As a bonus, the wireless museum is open, with all sorts of amazing equipment from the early days of radio. And if previous years are any indication, the Massie Station spark gap transmitter will be up and running.
