DSC04721.jpg (123459 bytes)  Our visit to R&T started at the blacksmith shop. 

DSC04722.jpg (110565 bytes)  The first thing I spotted was this great old press.  The fly weights gave the device a great feel and you SURE would not want to have your fingers under the ram after giving them a good spin!

R&T's Shay runs on maybe a mile of track pulling several passenger cars.  A great ride on an old engine..

I have no idea why but the movie camera images that I use are refusing to show up.  Click where the movie camera image SHOULD be and the link will work.

This note was sent by Bob B. and received on 2 February 2010. This sort of addition to our pages is always much appreciated!

I do have one comment (not critical) on the "Rough and Tumble" show page there in one tractor that is pretty special.  It is the Silver King.  There never were a lot of them and they were way ahead of their time.  They were made by the same company that made the little "Plymouth" industrial locomotives.  At first they were called Plymouth tractors, but agreed to change even though they had used the name before Chrysler did.  Anyway today Silver Kings are prized by collectors. Here is a history of the tractor. Just thought you might find it interesting.

I know nothing about tractors so I just took a lot of photos and hope that you tractor enthusiasts will find something to enjoy.
