Yantic, CT #1004

 

The Yantic, 1891 4th. size Silsby engine No. 1004 shown at the 100th. anniversary celebration for the engine. This engine is in beautiful operating condition.

The 1991 festivities included a parade and pumping demonstration by five of the steamers present including this Silsby and the Silsby #483 from Honesdale. It is believed that was the largest assembly of operating steamers in more than fifty years. Below are two photos from the historic event.
