While buttoning things up for winter in NY at the end of 2012 the season, Sean Crimmins, Patrick Walker and Mike Traficanti moved the Baker out of museum storage to have it accessible to work on over the winter. Here are a few photos of the move:
While the Baker appears to be towing the John Deere, the rope was actually being used to prevent the Baker from rolling down the Aerodrome’s parking lot hill too fast.
Sean steers the Baker with a tiller (the Baker had a tiller instead of a steering wheel), and Patrick Walker mans the tractor. The trees show what fall looks like in the Hudson Valley, just after peak.
