Are there any other photos of this generator unit? I'd like to know the make and model of the generator itself and see a photo of the commutator section.



The above photo is linked from Robert's Coolspring page.

Harry, the photos I posted are the only ones I have from this trip, and the Nate Lillibridge building is new since the last time I visited. I'm pretty sure the power for the incandescent lamps in the building was coming from that rig.

GREAT photos! Thanks for the excellent pictorial.

Does anyone know anything about that huge single-cylinder engine bedplate and crankshaft? It appears to have almost a 5 1/2 foot stroke!

Your photos really show what the place is like- I had no idea it was all set up like that.

Tom,
I don't know how we didn't run into each other that day! My dad can be seen in your video when you pan over to the right and I was there with him. I guess we were too mesmerized by the mechanical symphony in front of us!

Mike
