Hi Brian,
Thinking of earning money for toys.

I was at a local traction engine club meeting when the vice chairman walked in late. "Sorry I'm late" he announced, "I've been on the dozer all day, because we've a big job on" He was semi-retired from the family muck shifting buisness. "Ah the bank manager will call you sir next time you go in then" some one called out. "Well" replied the vice chairman, "it was actually his idea that we went out and found some work"
Another one of our mates now passed on, who's wit was as sharp as his engine driving.
Fred

I'm shocked such a rare engine is for sale. I pray it stays close to it's place of birth, Richmond Indiana (down the street from Gaar-Scott). I've seen this engine a few times but never when I had a camera.

When you see something like that Robinson outfit, it cries out for some local organizations and individuals to pool their resources and keep it in the area! That is something special!
Asking price is $43,750! That is about the starting price of a diesel pick up truck around here. And the truck loses a big chunk of its value the second you leave the dealer's lot! That Robinson outfit is way undervalued!
As they say - go find another one!
G.

The "Last Peerless" is also for sale. I wish it could come back east.

I never thought that Robinson outfit would change hands, maybe the local boys had better get serious and pool their resources if necessary and keep it in the area. Once it's gone its too late. I think I'll go out and buy a few lottery tickets,wish me luck! F.J.W.

Good luck Fwurth. I really hate seeing engines with a good local history leaving. The 22 Avery that was at our show since the 50s sold a couple years ago, and that one leaving was almost as sad as it would have been to see one of my family's engines go.
