I think they were the only major steam manufacturer to successfully make the transition to gas tractors.

Case undoubtedly was the longest lived but they weren't by any means the onyl steam company to survive well into the gas age. The depression was the final nail in many companies coffins and leadership and tenacity probably had more to do with surviving past ww2 than designs for the old companies.
Minneapolis had some good gas tractors before merging with Twin Cities and Moline to become Minneapolis Moline.
Hubers gas tractors were possibly more successful than their steam, and were produced in a large variety of models and numbers.

Avery had a good run of gas tractors, but didn't transition well to the lightweight modern designs.

Emerson Brangtingham did a good run of gas tractors before being bought by case, although their steam production was the product of buy outs and not from within the company. It may have also been part of their downfall.
What all is in volume 2 of Full Steam Ahead? Volume 1 was pretty good.
