Since acquiring my 'Jumbo' steam engine a few years ago, I have been doing research on Harrison Machine Company. A lot of research.

I started with material that was readily available, namely Floyd Clymer's Album of Traction Engines, and Jack Norbeck's Encyclopedia of American Steam Traction Engines. Clymer's book contained only one illustration of a Jumbo engine, while Norbeck's book contained several.
