Stashed in a back corner of a box car - smaller dynamo, nameplate is not readable. I'm not hip to these things so I can't venture a guess as to the model or manufacturer or where it came from. We'll pull it out into the light, blow the crud off and get more images. Unknown if it works. You can scale the size by my size nine boots. Let me know if there's any interest.

I don't recognize this as a steam powered turbo-generator. At least I've never seen one like it. I wonder if it is an electric motor driven water pump?

Duh. Thanks guys. Shouldn't have taken their word for it.

So as not to create any more confusion, the moderators can delete this thread if they wish.
