Weekend Steam II: Case Hill Climbing

 The J.I. Case Company used hill climbs to promote their engines a century ago.  It is something that not many engines or operators can do. Watching the engine back down with the front wheels coming off the ramp makes me jumpy. As you start down you change the engine over to Reverse, and use the throttle to stop. It would be easy to screw that up and have a runaway, or do a somersault.   Thanks for the pick, Merle!
