If you miss this monster of a steam tractor going through Ennis Montana, then you're not paying attention to your surroundings. This old steam powered tractor is on display just off the road as you drive through Ennis. When I was taking some shots of this beauty, the owner came out and talked to me a little about it. He said that legend has it that it made its way down the Missouri and into Montana where a guy used it at his lumber mill about 7 miles outside of Ennis. The owner was able to save it from being scraped and now displays it on his property. He told me in the winter he lights it up with Christmas lights and makes it look as though the wheels are turning. What an awesome guy to find and save this piece of history.
