Case 45, Serial Number 22,592, built in 1909. Picture taken in the Spring of 1912. It had just finished grading roads in the town of Centerville. Pictures are: Albert Vosburg, Wellington Vosburg and 'Dutch' Van Nome on the ground.

This engine graded roads, threshed in the fall and sawed lumber all winter for many years in Centerville and surrounding towns. It is still owned by Wellington Vosburg. Courtesy of Bradley Vosburg, Farmersville Station, New York 14060

This picture was taken in 1915 at Vulcan, Alberta. It shows one of the five Reeves Steamers that were owned by W. H. Jurney & Sons. This 40-140 C.C. Reeves [pulling 7 drills & harrows] would seed a 1/4 section which is 160 acres, in a day, burning Drumheller coal. All of the 7 drills are not seen in the picture as part of it is cut off. The engineer is my Uncle Clyde, the man at extreme left, is my Uncle Loyd, and the man in the middle is my Dad, Howard Jurney, all brothers. Courtesy of Arlo Jurney, F3 Kingsland Tr.

In bottom picture, Mike stands, justly proud beside his Avery under mounted steam model. All items of wagon and machines are the products of his own ingenuity and skillful attention to detail. He also showed two gas engine models and one hot air engine model built by his talented son, Wilbur. The latter items were photographed, but in my amateurish way, I bungled the pictures.

A photo of an underground STEAM LOCOMOTIVE that was used in a coal mine near Morgantown, West Virginia. I have been told that it was charged with steam at the stationary power plant and would last for several hours before it needed recharged. It was used to pull coal cars into & out of the mine. Note the large diameter and the length of the boiler barrel. Also it looks to have a large diameter cylinder.
