Remarks: Triple expansion engine. Engine includes radial valve gear, stamped into I.P. cylinder "W. Sisson & Co., Gloucester/312 (plus unidentifiable numbers); bed plate painted green. Missing all of its head nuts. Part of the "Webster Collection". Also listed on Mr. Webster's 15 December 1992 Certificate of Gift was an "Enburg piston valve engine", which apparently was not assigned an Accession Number. Our file does not have any further information on this engine. Also noted on a Feb. 15, 1994 update to Mr. Webster's donation is the addition of "one air/steam pump" and "one marine engine", neither identified by Accession Number.
