Celebrating Steam Traction Engine Heritage

Restoration of a 1909 Lang & Button traction engine launched a new focus for a New York steam club.

Post-restoration debut, August 2014
During its post-restoration debut in August 2014, the Lang & Button provided power to a stationary hay press and a threshing machine, and made several runs over the parade route. Operators here are Dave and Barb Conroy, longtime club members and former owners of the Lang & Button. The Conroys are major contributors to the club's steam restoration projects and play an active role as volunteers as well.
