Here is a large pic of 2 steam tractors on a flat car:

What a great photo!

Must have been one heck of a boat---three boilers--well four, if you count what looks like a junk marine one which must be in another flat car behind the tractors.

That would make a great model! I looked at O scale steam tractor kits a while back and they were...were...a hundred and...wheew...too stinkin' much dinero for me to invest in a static model. Especially since it was all metal and would more than likely cause drivers to slip trying to move the flat with it loaded. Two of them? Holy cow!
