| May/June 1962

The elder Mr. Hull built the little engine in 1959 and the big one in time for the 1960 meet. Statistics on the larger engine follow: Length 10 ft. 9 in.; height 6 ft. 11 in.; 18 in. boiler with 13-2 inch flues; 5 x 7 cylinders; 10/20 International tractor wheels; 50 gal. water tank and rates 7hp at 199 lbs. boiler pressure. Information on the little engine was not available at the time of publication.

Both Mr. Hull and his son are charter members of the Williams Grove group of enthusiasts and George is presently serving as vice-president.

(Editor's note - Since this news item was received for publication, we learned of the death of Mr. John \. Hull, which occurred in December, 1961. Mr. Hull wars widely known throughout the central Pennsylvania area and will be sadly missed by the many friends he made among the steam engine enthusiasts.)

You knew him well, I'm sure. He was everywhere during the reunions as well as before and after the event helping to get ready and then cleaning up.

Much of the success of these events was due to his hard work. He will be greatly missed.

He had many friends and acquaintances among the Iron-Men and visitors.
