Engine Club Becomes Family Tradition

The Jack Branch Engine Club began, and became family tradition, 45 years ago with one man and the purchase of a Fairbanks-Morse Model Z.

Bob Gill in 2011 with his first engine, a 6 HP IHC Famous (serial no. HG244), which he purchased in 1968. The engine was restored during the winter of 1968-1969 and was re-restored by Bob and his son Rob in 2011. During the original restoration, Bob misplaced the original tag and Rob had to make a new one during the re-restoration.
