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 Lansing, Michigan, and the remaining shipped on to Reese, Michigan 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. (Fred forgot to tell us what year this all happened. Ed.)
