The Fairbanks-Morse Eclipse

This engine is believed to be from around 1910, but difficult to date accurately as the serial number plate is missing.

This was my first hit and miss engine and runs sweetly. I intend to leave it in its original condition -a finish like this can only be achieved with 90 years of hard living!!!

This engine had the honour of running for an hour during the Solar Eclipse on August 11th 1999.
