Looks like we had another head-scratcher with last issue's "mystery" engine. Ricard Mosher, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, was the only person to recognize the Canadian-built Waterous engine. Ricard writes: "In answer to the July/August 2006 mystery engine, it looks like a Waterous made in Brantford, Ontario, Canada."

For getting his answer in first, Ricard gets a free copy of Prof. P.S. Rose's Steam Engine Guide.

This month's mystery engine comes, as usual, courtesy of John Spalding, 112 Carriage Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075 (

This engine's a bit less obscure than the Waterous, and the first person to correctly identify the engine, by mail, gets a free copy of Prof. P.S. Rose's Steam Engine Guide.

The next question is, where is the engine and what's it doing? We'll send out an extra copy of Steam Engine Guide to the person whose guess comes closest. Good steaming!
