Historic Restored Wayne County Steam Tractor to Feature on TV Show

By Margaret Allen
The impressive restoration of the Spencer Steam Tractor in Wayne County will be a featured segment on TV this upcoming Sunday morning. The historic tractor, originally built in Pleasant Mount in1888, was restored over the past several years by a group of dedicated volunteers. Other attempts at fixing and preserving the relic fell short, but the latest Five Star team of men and driving force of Kim Erickson persevered. The journey is being highlighted on this week's episode of Small Town Big Deal on WYOU, Sunday morning at 7:30. The historic Silsby Steamer, restored back in the mid 1980s, will also be featured in the show.
