I have been for some time now searching for a steam traction engine.
Always had an interest in older tractors (own 4 Gassers from the 40's and 50's)
Just wondering if anybody here gets to play with a Steam Traction engine or has restored one/owns one themselves.
With PA having a rich heritage in Steam Engine production (Frick and Peerless in Waynesboro etc) I would have thought there would be a fair amount of them still turn out some smoke out there!
Just wondering more than anything!
Post some pictures if you have one!
I of course will keep looking, i'm sure i'll run across one eventually.
There is a partial Frick Engine for sale tomorrow.
Just listed in today's local paper.
Here is the auction info. http://www.auctionzip.com/Listings/1558289.html
They even have a picture gallery that shows the tractor in its present condition. Looks like it is missing the front plate but gives you a good look at the tubes.....
