Dudley Diebold's Antique Tractor Collection Open House
« on: October 20, 2019, 08:18:26 pm »
On Saturday the 19th I drove just 31 miles to Roxbury Connecticut for the open house at Dudley Diebold's tractor collection at the Living History Farm at Toplands Farm. This place is one of Connecticut's real treasures.

I even got to ride on and drive a Huber traction engine with an unusual return flow boiler. (the only one I've ever seen on a traction engine)

I also had opportunity to re-visit Emory Campbell's 55 HP Blackstone Electric Lighting Engine which now has a new home at the Living History Farm Museum.

Here below are 4 videos of the event.

Enjoy,

Gil

Thanks, Nick. The Big 4 is a bit out of my league due to space and price limits!
