BOISE -- A rare collection of antique tractors rolled into downtown Boise Wednesday.

They are being set up at Jack's Urban Meeting Place (JUMP) to serve as sort of an agricultural museum.

Crews had to use cranes and specialty equipment to put them in place.

Many are unusual models from the original steam era, with some weighing up to 12 tons.

J.R. (Simplot) decided he wanted to start an ag museum, he went up to the auction and bought about a hundred pieces of equipment, and for the project we're putting about 50 of them in, the most unique and rare, said David Standerford.

Construction on JUMP is scheduled to be finished next summer.
