IMA tractor pictures this month include a working Case engine and a stuck, abandoned Peerless.
We begin the 56th volume of Iron-Men Album with a Case engine on our cover. The picture was sent by owners Tom and Ed Curtis of Pompey, New York. The 1920 engine is #35000, a 50 HP model. Remember, the best way to get your engine.
Tanner Remillard in Pendleton, Oregon sent us tractor pictures of himself and an unrestored engine. 'It is what is left of a Peerless steam tractor, sunk up to its axles, not sure what HP. I am 18 years old. When I paid my visit it was a 'nice, wet' day and about a mile and a half walk to get to it in the rain, but it was well worth it. It is up in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon. I had hopes of getting and restoring this tractor, but it was pretty much done in for. I heard that it was there and I had to go see it. There are very few parts left on it that would be useful.' Welcome to the world of steam traction engine collecting, Tanner! FC
