Our reproduction of the 1895 Jacob Price Field Locomotive catalog continues, with pages 18 and 19 of the original catalog.

Regarding warranty information, it's interesting to note that no specific action or compensation is suggested in the event a Jacob Price engine fails to perform as promised. It would be interesting to know how the factory responded to performance issues. The remainder of the section focuses on preparation for operating an engine, with particular emphasis on oiling.

Join us next issue when we pick up with page 20 of the Jacob Price Field Locomotive catalog.

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