Our reproduction of the 1895 Jacob Price Field Locomotive catalog continues, picking up from last issue's installment, which focused on Jacob Price engines and plowing attachments. This issue we present page 14, a detailed listing of sizes, weights, capacities and prices for Jacob Price engines. They were hardly cheap: An 80 HP listed for $4,000 - almost $90,000 in 2005 dollars!

Special thanks to John Davidson, 8250 200th Ave., Bristol, WI 53104, for generously supplying his original 1895 Jacob Price catalog so we could share it with our readers.
