A wonderful machine --
Great shots of the engine.
Oh yea, I'm lovin' these! Steam tractors are a mechanical wonder.
I love these machines also. May only be 65 hp. but they pulled an 8 bottom plow! Huge torque. It took a crew of a dozen to run one of these. That's why smaller gas tractors became popular in 1910s and 1920s.
What a great engine! Nicely photographed as well. The B&W works well here, but I'd still like to see a color photo of this engine.
These wheels are huge. What a neat old engine. It really shows up well in black and white, but I bet it is beautiful in color, too.
So THAT'S what a steam traction engine looks like! Who knew?!?!
I think it's my first time to see this kind of machine. Look good in B&W.
Wonderful photos! Superb machines.
