Pictured above is John's wife, Steam Engine Woman Marge Clark as she adds some finishing touches to the 1885 Case 10 HP portable steam engine.

The Tri-State Historical Steam Engine Association, Inc. held its 42nd annual Steam Engine Show in September 1998 at Mineral Beach, Finleyville, Pennsylvania. The event featured John Clark and his 1885 10 HP Case portable steam engine. John Clark also owns a 1908 Case 15 HP traction engine.

John and his family would like to trace the heritage of his Case engines. We would like to know if there are any more of the small Case portables still making steam, and where they are. Please drop us a line or send us a photo. Address: Barry D. Clark, 1207 Bay View Avenue, Shady Side, Maryland 20764; e-mail address: BClarkCo@aol.com
