I know this will show up later on in the "What's New at Burnsland.com" section, but I thought I would highlight it here, too.

This past weekend, we went to a Heritage Festival, and one of the things we saw was a steam tractor. Pretty cool! Check it out:

Here's a page on a steam tractor that I used to get to operate:

Sadly the tractor is no longer local to me and the boiler has been condemmed.

Traction engines are cool....if a bit scary! Operating them on a daily basis must have been an experience! I have a pretty rare large scale model kit of one.....hope to build some day!

Actually that looks to be a half size model of a Case. I don't believe that they ever built one that
