Buffalo-Springfield Road Roller

A 1928 Buffalo-Springfield road roller is at the heart of a Washington man's life-long love affair with steam.

From left to right in the steering station: the manual steering wheel, power steering lever with knob, reverse lever (with latch), throttle (just left of the high globe valve), governor, 2-cylinder main engine, main steam line, exhaust line, pressure gauge, water gauge and steam line to water. The coal bunker is under the driver, nestled into the frame.
