    As a kid I grew up in the corn belt of Northern Illinois in the town of DeKalb. Each year the city would have its annual corn boil and street fair. For the corn boil they would bring in two or three of the old steam tractors and their boilers were plumbed to horse troughs full of water. The tractors would get the water boiling and bushels of sweet corn were tossed in to cook. Pitchforks pull the cooked corn from the troughs and anyone interested could eat all the corn dipped in melted butter they could handle.

    I can still remember those old tractors clunking down the road and blowing their whistles for the kids on the street. Guess I should check and see if they still do that in DeKalb. Might be worth a trip.

    If this tractor? is where I think it is, don't worry about it sitting around and rusting. I think it is part of a display at the Cog Railway. Mt Washington NH
