Those old steam tractors were nothing but a train engine on lugged wheels and could do some serious work. I have seen them in operation at some shows where they are using them from everything from pulling a saw mill to threshing wheat. Back at the turn of the last century the BIG outfits in the Northwestern USA used them to pull plows on the multi thousand acre wheat farms..

Neat old tractor. It's amazing how much they could do with a steam engine.
