Mr. M. L. Winter K. D. 1, Hellam, Pa., was foreman in the Flinchbaugh Factory at York, Pa., and is still enthusiastic about steam and gas tractors. This is his lineup of the tractors he has collected. The first on the left is a belt driven tractor. The second is one he built himself while in the factory learning the machinists trade. The third is 11/2 hp. Flinchbaugh and the fourth is a late model 2 hp. Flinchbaugh that had a design away ahead of his time. He had the only reversible gas engine that we know anything about. We hope to have an article on these engines and Company in a future issue.
