Default Lister Bruston Lighting Plant Restoration

Within our Meijer Motoren Museum we are the proud owners of a Lister Bruston Automatic Electric Lighting Plant which is in a real good condition, see attached documents.
The Lighting Plant has been around within our museum for about forty years. During this time, the Lighting Plant has been operational (mechanical part only) for demonstration. Recently we started looking also into the electrical part. You can find details about our succesfully found patents, descriptions and other interesting documents in our Restoration Challenge document which is currently our only source of technical information to do the job. (see for details http://meijermuseum.nl/onze-motoren/...ion-challenge/ )
According to our information, Lister Bruston plants of this kind have been shipped to the US and Canada massively nearly a century ago, some say over a thousand systems.
If somebody knows of similar Lister Bruston restoration initiatives now or in the past, we would like to know. Also we are interested in relevant technical information if available.

Hi jensma, You could try posting on the UK engine site, as the units You refer to are of UK manufacture.
