Yantic's 1891 Silsby Steam Fire Engine is back home as of today. Many thanks to Ray O'Connel and the Yantic Fire Engine Co #1 for giving us the opportunity to restore this unique steamer. If you're in the area, go see her

It's my understanding that Uncle Willy spent many hours riding the rear step of this beauty.

Thanks Ray.

Maybe I did ride that rig in my younger days but right now, "my mind just doesn't remember".

Was Micky Ds and White Castle around then ?

Could I go to the drive up window with that rig for a couple of Big Macs ?

I was just wondering.

But without a doubt, that is certainly a collectors rig that is owned by the Yantic FD.
