Case 50 Engine and Model

The Big and Little of it. Case 50 which is in working order at Colorado Springs, Colorado, and the Model built by Geo. Glusick, 1408 Claremont Avenue, Pueblo, Colorado. Alvin Glusick, nine-year-old son of the Model builder is on the 50. See description by

Box 244, Calhan, Colorado

I am sending some pictures of a model Case steam traction engine. I believe they would be of interest to readers of your fine magazine.

The little engine was built by Geo. Glusick, 1408 Claremont Avenue, Pueblo, Colorado.

It took two years of spare time to build the model. Cylinder bore 2, stroke 2 inches. Overall length is 58 inches and 30 inches high. Operates on 80 to 100 lbs. steam. The boiler has been tested at 250 lbs. per square inch.

There are no castings, all parts are mild steel cut, welded and machined to shape. The rear axle and differential are from an old model A Ford with the differential built into the hub of the right wheel. It is driven by roller chain instead of gears and travels at about one mile per hour.
