I believe the engine Bruce Buckle owned, is the engine now owned by Paul and Gary Frampton of Keswick Ontario. This engine is sitting at the Georgian Bay Steam Show Grounds in Cookstown awaiting a new boiler.

The quality of this photo isn't great... but here it is at the Cookstown Grounds.... if I am correct.

John,
You could call Waterloo Manufacturing Co. They have a toll free number and someone there might be able to tell you when they moved from King Street:
http://watmfg.com/
Another source might be the Waterloo Public Library. It has fire maps, etc.. If you find out, let us know. I have seen those dates but wouldn't know where to find them now!
Good luck.
Oh! It says on the website that they are hiring! I see their vans and guys around now and then. They have nice company overalls and presentable vans. Likely a good place to work. Keep that Lion roaring!

I posted this engine in the "Way Back At Milton Steam Era" thread awile ago.Mr Ken Bowles from the Guelph area had a dandy 20-22 Waterloo engine wich was on display at the Milton Ontario show (Steam Era) for many years.From what i understand this engine went up around the Muskoka area just off of Hwy 11 if i remember correctly

John,
The U uv G may not have much on the later times. Actually, WMC's move to its new location must have been in the 1960s or later? I am not sure. They still imported Deutz tractors into the late 60s, maybe the 70s?

I have had a batch of several hundred pix and finally started going through them. This one was marked as a Gaar-Scott, but it looks like a 28 horse Waterloo rear mount engine to me.
It was taken at Grandview, Manitoba and the owner is given as Reginald Moon. He is hauling two, 24-inch scrub breaker ploughs.
My GS&M tractor came from Grandview and it did exactly the same thing.

There is no data on this picture. I like these scenes. Good, hard working folks taking a second out of their day. You have to appreciate that somebody had the foresight to capture that second!
It is a Waterloo mill and you can just see the lion's head on the smoke box door of the engine. It could be a 25hp engine.

John,
The rear wheels look like the straw burning western style Waterloos, which were much different from Ontario engines. I am probably wrong, but there never seemed to be any of the 20-22 engines in the west that we are accustomed to here.

I’ve been finding info on a 16hp Waterloo single speed engine out here. It’s looking like Waterloo may have been more of a “build what you order” type of manufacturer, as apposed to a builder of western and eastern engines. Their wide assortment of H.P’s makes them interesting to try and figure out. Luckily some of the “Old, Old steam guys left references to these engine combinations and it’s tracible info now and makes sense. That single speed thing was confusing until I found that the 2 speed was a popular option that most ordered. There seems to have been more 16hp engines in the west , at least by what’s remaining, as apposed to the 18hp. That may have been a dealer preference, to sell to the farmers that couldn’t afford or need a bigger engine out here. There was definitely a gap between the big farming operations and the guys trying to get by with smaller machinery http://images.ourontario.ca/waterloo/30142/image/83718. http://images.ourontario.ca/waterloo/45724/data. https://www.farmcollector.com/steam-...canadian-model

From my understanding, the engine is still owned by the Mank Family with every intention of keeping the engine in the family. I don't have any other particulars after that.

From the little bit that I have heard, I would say that the engine does still runs but it is not being shown.
