Here is a photo of what is probably the last engine the J. ?.
Case Company will ever sell. The 50 Case engine was bought from the
Case Company, Rock Island, Illinois, and shipped to me on a flat
car with 5 new Case tractors. Two tractors were taken off at

on May 30. Tractors and engine were run off the car, each under
their own power. Courtesy of Fred Steck, R. D. 1, Reese, Michigan.
