Default Bessemer? Found large compressing engine...

I was up at my camp site near bradford not to long ago and i stumbled upon a few oilfied buildings with nothing in them except one had a large compressing engine of some sort. it looks like a bessemer. Possibly 15,000 to 20,000 pounds about 60 to 80 HP?? I will see if i can get a photo of it uploaded.

Try contacting the Coolspring Power Museum. They may have a source that will be knowledgeable on the company that built this engine.
