1915 Catalog Pages
In the January 1963 issue of Engineers and Engines Magazine, there were twelve pages published (ironically, pages 1-12) from what appears to be the 1915 Buffalo Pitts catalog (or from a year very close to 1915). Credit for those pages was given to Glen McNamar, Route 1, Granger, Missouri. Just Ctrl-Left-Click on the name of the file to open a new tab in your web browser to view the PDF images.
Or, click HERE to view the photo album containing those 1915 catalog pages.
We also have the same catalog from Paul E. Deo of Snover, Michigan, USA. Paul is a Buffalo Pitts engine owner, and has donated these catalog images.

Other owners and fans of the Buffalo Pitts Company engines have indicated that they will provide scans of original catalogs in the future.

Buffalo Steam Roller Company
We've also have the Historical Construction Equipment Association (HCEA.net) to thank for the following catalogs from the Buffalo Steam Roller Company (a subsidiary of Buffalo Pitts). The webmaster took the images, tweaked them in Picasa (straightened, cropped all to the same size, converted to black & white for faster downloading, removed large imperfections where possible, adjusted the darkness & contrast). Then, the images were pasted into a blank Microsoft Word document. That document was converted to a PDF format using Cute PDF Writer (in black & white to reduce size).
The last PDF below is a small brochure for steamroller engineers and states that it is for "Pitts Rollers" on the front page, but states "Buffalo-Springfield Roller Company" inside. So, it applies to both companies (Buffalo Steamroller and Buffalo-Springfield).
And, there you have it.
