The Case steam engine has always been a topic of interest to IMA readers. This month two readers had contributions. Along with his most recent letter, our faithful friend Gary Yaeger of Whitefish, MT sent a couple Case pictures and a slew about Reeves steam engines. He says:

'I have not had time to write a decent letter for some time. I decided to send some pictures that can be woven into pages with a description. This way, I won't let down the friends who are expecting something from me.

'I got some nice pictures taken in the Geraldine area of the Judith Basin in Montana. I am also including a postcard picture from Lindsay, Montana.

'I promise more before too long. I do have a very busy summer scheduled. I am ready to retire and play with steam, unrestricted!'



And we have this from Leonard G. Klima of Sacramento, CA:

'My are pictures of an old Case in a yard with other old equipment. It still has a lot of valuable parts for any restorer. I feel bad when I see a once great piece of equipment that has died a horrible death, perhaps never to run again.
