Great article on a "Train Float" from the Batavia Daily News, click here.
"This unique contraption will be one of the float’s in Attica’s 12th annual Founder’s Day parade on Saturday. Meant to resemble the boxcars used to transport 40 soldiers or eight horses to battle in World War I, this replica was built after World War II by Wyoming County Voiture 40 & 8 of the American Legion. From left are Sherry and Max Szemplenski, Rick Montford and his grandson and Volney Spencer, who have been working to clean up the vehicle, which they found stored on a resident’s property."
