One hundred years ago there were many different brands of tractors that farmers could choose from. Meanwhile, in Indianapolis, three brothers, George, James and William Lyons, had bought the defunct Atlas Engine Works, a long-time maker of steam, gas and diesel engines, and organized the Lyons-Atlas Company. Lyons-Atlas continued to build engines, including a version of the Knight sleeve-valve engine.

Out of the wild
Labor saving devices are nothing new, but they rarely inspire the kind of dedicated stewardship that antique engines do. This week in Fort Meade, Florida, the members of the Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club opened the gates of their unique acre clubhouse to give the public a first hand look at the fruits of this devotion. If you harbor a secret wish to operate a tractor, bulldozer or backhoe, these are your people. With a mission to "preserve the past for the future" they have built numerous display buildings, a running vintage steam powered sawmill check out the video belowa tractor pull track and a large construction field where members can pull levers and push dirt with vintage cranes, backhoes and bulldozers.
