That's not a cheap hobby!

You are thinking just like my dad, Merle! He used to say about things like this, "That's a rich man's hobby!" At one time you could pick up easily restoreable gas engines for a reasonable price, but those days are gone. The interesting thing I see about collectible tractors is the tires cost more now than the tractors are generally worth. They can be a good hobby for the budget minded, though. I don't know how the steam engine hobby survives, other than people love them enough to spend the money. They are having new boilers built for many of them now, and you are looking at $50,000-ish to have one built.
