An Engine for Every Engineer

From 1878 through 1914, Gaar-Scott Offered an Impressive Array of Engines

From Gaar-Scott's 1905 yearly catalog, the caption on this photo reads, “One of the first traction engines from our works, and still in good operating condition.” Gaar-Scott prided themselves on the longevity of their engines and made various references in their catalogs to engines that had been running for 20 to 30 years. This engine was horse-guided and used wooden wheels on the front and back.
