Case engine #34977 was built specially in 1920 and has several unusual features. Although Case traction engines could be purchased with foot brake for an additional $10 (as advertised in 1912), William Nash, owner of this engine, has never seen nor heard of one so equipped. Nash, of R.R. #2, Box 169, Winchester, IN 47394, reports this engine is very strong and in remarkable shape.

This picture comes from the collection of Charles L. Shelton, 511 North Cochran, Hobbs, NM 88240. He has no identification to offer on the people, horses or engines in the picture, but maybe someone else will!

81-year old Elmer Gray is seen here with his 1/4 size Case 65 model as he appeared at a 1987 show. See page 30 for the full story of his project.

Orin Hanson, Rt. 1, Box 17, Sanish, North Dakota 58763 submits this photograph of his 1914 30 HP Minneapolis double simple cylinder steam engine, which he runs each year at the Makoti Threshing Show.
