A Rare Traction Engine - 6 HP Westinghouse made in 1897. I went to Menden, Wisconsin early in 1957 with my brother and his son and trucked it home to my brother's place in Tioga Center, New York. My nephew owns it now, Virgil Van Natta of Boston, New York.

This picture was taken in September 1974 at the Owego, New York Fairgrounds. I am running it. I want you to know it ran like a sewing machine. I am 85 years old. Courtesy of Wm. Van Natta, 235 Main Street, Johnson City, New York 18790
