I bought it in 1984 from David Baldock, a dealer in Goudhurst. Before him it was owned by a Bill Jude, who took it apart for a rebuild and paint job, but didn't finish it, so it was in pieces when I got it. It was imported to UK by Paul Foulkes Halbard in about 1981, at this time it was in running order. In the US, it was owned by an Art Thomas, and it was the subject of articles in 'Light Steam Power' 24(1),36-38, and 24(2), 83-85. I think these refs are right, but I only have photocopies. At that time (the '70s?) it was used as a testbed for the Mobile Steam Society's experimental monotube generator, but the original Stanley boiler was put back before it was exported. It also featured (article and cover photo) in an issue of 'Steam Automobile' in about 1981, but I am afraid I have lost my copy of that article. If you have it, I would welcome a photocopy!

The last time it was shown was at Lingfield in August 2003.
