Huber Steam Traction Engine Model

Description
This miniature Huber Traction engine model is a working steam model built by Mr. Raymond T. Stout in 1962. “Live” steam toys were very popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, model tractors and engines were considered children’s playthings, helping them learn engineering principles at an early age. This is a model of a 1901 Huber Traction engine, a steam-powered tractor that could be used to haul a load, or power machinery by attaching a belt to the engine’s flywheel.
