Another view of the engine that is pictured on the Cover this month. It is the Wood Bros. make. Randy, who owns this engine is 17 and also has a Case 20 HP, 1910 steam engine, Serial no. 23712 that he and his father purchased in 1971 and restored. Randy has been an engineer on the Case for two years now at Antique Acres Steam Show at Cedar Falls, Iowa which makes him another young engineer. He keeps his Wood Bros. engine at his home, so he can have fun with it there. Courtesy of Mrs. Ed Schwerin, Route 2, Sumner, Iowa 50674
