This 16 hp engine was built in Dayton, Ohio about 1906.  It was used by the Santa Fe railroad in the town of Conway, Kansas for a water pumping application.  It has a hit and miss governor that stops the entire side shaft while it is coasting.  By this, it runs extremely smoothly.  It came to the museum in about 2007.

This little engine was built in Pittsburgh, PA circa 1910.  The history of the maker and his location is unclear and there is little information available.  This engine has an open crank case and unusual valve placement design.  Original ignition would have been hot tube where the spark plug is.  It is about two hp and could have been used in a very small machine shop.  It was donated to the museum in about 2000 without any other information.
