Found a 21:45 min. video on Facebook. It has info about  a Company that just started doing work for the WW&F. Video is not about railroads.      But very interesting.Look up
 
        "Building the 150 Case Road Locomotive"

 150 means a 150 ton machine

Dwight,
The 150 is not the weight...it is the horsepower rating as determined by a Prony Brake.

Here is a photo of my live steam 2” scale Case 65.....65 hp traction engine.

It's impressive, I saw them riveting one of uthe wheels together. He bought Dakota Foundry because he didn't want some corporation buying it and refuse to make small and one of parts he needed for the Case. Of course it also fit nicely with his existing company in his business model .
