1st. Steam Traction engines


Brad in Wisconsin

The recent posting/ discussion of a 1st. Buffalo-Pitts reminded me of reading of the 1st. Swayne-Robinson. traction engine..The article was written in 1940 by H.T. Shepler in the book How to restore Antique and Classic Cars Popular Mechanics Press. Since the article was written, Prewar,did the first Swayne-Robinson survive?
