New Acquisitions at the Reynolds Museum

| November/December 1983

One of the recent acqusitions of the Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, is a portable steamer which has been dated circa 1890. The only marking on the engine other than some casting numbers is the 'R & Co.' on the firebox door. The museum would like to hear from anyone who can identify the engine, and so would we!

Another recent acquisition is a Tozer & Dial engine which arrived from South Carolina. It was made in Columbia, South Carolina and is said to be 8 HP the portable engine arrived at the museum with its original wooden wheels.

The 1922 Sawyer Massey 68 HP steam traction engine in the museum collection is now restored. Another new engine for the museum is the 1885 Nichols Shepard portable (also with wooden wheels) which came to them from Michigan.

The Reynolds Museum is open daily May 1-September 30, and has over 200 steam traction engines, 1000 antique automobiles, 600 gas tractors, and numerous related antiques. Contact them at 4118 57th Street, Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada T9A 2B6.
