    Carl Tuttle age 79 past away May 4th in Pawnee OK. He was best known for one of the few people that would preform the Case incline with at steam engine. Some of you may remember he was kind enough to come to WMSTR during the 2006 Case Expo and preform the incline demonstration.

    He will always be remembered as one of the best steam operators our thoughts and prayers go out to his family

    I remember watching in amazement as he went up and down that incline. Scared the devil out of me! He will be missed.
