Donald Webb of Rt. 3, Amarillo, Texas 79107 bought this engine
from Bob Hanley of Berryville, Arkansas in 1984. The engine spent
most of its life around Harrison, Arkansas. After Webb restored
this tractor, he bought a 36-60 Advance Rumely separator which he
has finished restoring.

Pictured above is self-proclaimed ‘old engineer’ Sid
Jones, 11512 -139th St., Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T5X 3L4, along

Very early Lang & Button traction engine built in Ithaca,
NY. 2 unusual features: wooden spoked front wheels and lack of
steam dome. Steam is heated by stack heat before reaching governor.
From Steve Davis, RD 2, Box 842, West Winfield, NY L3491.
