Sometimes it is as simple as stopping and asking if it is for sale. They either invite you in or chase you out.

My son spotted it a few months ago, and it was not for sale as far as he could ascertain. It's too far north to retrieve, anyway! Ian

Looks like a Rider Ericsson hot air engine to me. I would love to have it.

Yes, it is a 10" Rider Ericsson hot air engine, but mighty heavy and 2-3000Km from anywhere.

North, South, East or West of anywhere? East is probably out as that's nearly NZ territory.
Yep, stuff is still out there. You just have to drive, look and ask. Ask everyone's old mate-Rob.......

It's an engine. You fill it with water, light a fire in one side and away she goes. They are simply amasing to watch when they're running
