Advance-Rumely #15275 is on the cover. S. Douglas Greer bought the engine from Kenneth M. Mattis of Brookville, Ohio in 1979. It was restored by John J. Holp & Sons, Lewisburg, Ohio and delivered to Greer in September 1980 at the Mason-Dixon Historical Society in Westminster, Maryland.

Owner Greer of 1515 Underwood St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20012 says the engine is in a wonderful state of repair. 'The gearing is like new and it is a very good steamer.'
