Jack Norbeck, author of Encyclopedia of American Steam Traction Engines now in its third edition, is a tireless promoter of the steam engine hobby. As president of Norbeck Research of Coplay, Pa., Norbeck has assembled a library display which has been traveling for several years. (See IMA, September/October 1978 p. 7) On this page, are pictures of the display in some of its more remote locations.
