The Return of “Big Red”: Tractor Installed Along Gurley Avenue in Gillette | Regional News

GILLETTE — It was a blustery Thursday afternoon as a forklift carried a 1925 Fordson Model F tractor north on Gurley Avenue. City workers assisted with traffic control as the forklift maneuvered onto the sidewalk and gently unloaded the 3,000-pound tractor onto a concrete slab, across from the Sinclair gas station and just past the overpass of Gurley.

“It will fit perfectly there,” said Nello Williams, snapping photos with his phone. “It’s not Big Red the horse, it’s Big Red the tractor.”
