Default Compound Marine Steam Engine

Here is a link to an absolutely beautiful marine steam engine, suitable for powering a full-size launch:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Steam-engin...0AAOSw-xVaIK8Z

This engine belonged to a very close friend who passed away several years ago from a brain tumor. His widow is selling the collection to fund college tuition for their two children. I have personally assisted in the examination and documentation of these very rare machines.

This engine is beautifully crafted and in excellent condition and I have no doubts that it would operate perfectly on a suitable boiler. A vintage, double acting compound steam engine of this caliber is extremely rare and for those who want the ultimate in a power plant for their 20-foot steam launch, this is it.

There are also two other engines being offered:

Funding collected from the sale of these engines goes to a good cause.

Default Re: Compound Marine Steam Engine

I see One Sold and the other two "Reserve Not Met".

Were the other two sold privately or are they going to be relisted again ?

They're all out of my price range at the moment but I can pass them along to others that might be interested.
