The 150 HP CASE is the biggest steam traction engine which has ever made. After their initial construction in 1905, none of them survived, but in 2018, Kory Anderson completely rebuilt them all. This enormous steam tractor’s first design was produced by the JI Case Company in Racine, Wisconsin, in 1905. It served as a giant freighter that transported bulky cargo over long distances between rail connections.
Over the course of its two-year production run, just nine 150HP Case road locomotives were built. Hemmings asserts that their parts were sold at auction for scrap after they ceased production, which was partially caused by a lack of metallurgy at the time.
Anderson, who spent his childhood around steam engines, made the decision to take control of his actions more than ten years ago. In order to acquire information and produce drawings for the 150HP Case steam engine, he visited archives with his team.
They also created each and every component of the steam tractor so that it could be put together in a manner that was identical to the nine original 150HP Case tractors. The engine, which weighed more than 6,200 pounds and required 640 rivets for each rear tire, took 16 months to construct.
