Default Coolspring Power Museum

Coolspring Power Museum is asking for donations to build yet another building on the grounds. This building will house the Man engine. If you have a PayPal account send to CPMCoolspring@aol.com. If you would like to send a check log into coolspringpowermuseum.org and the address and information is there. So if you need a tax deduction this is a great place to donate. Your donation is tax deductible with in the law.

Thank you for your help.

It is a MAN diesel engine. Maschinenfabrik Augsburg-Nürnberg.
And Kevin, you are Ruff, not Rough and Tumble.

Here is what I know....
This 12 HP (air blast injection) engine was manufactured in 1903 by Vereinigte Maschinenfabrik Augsburg und Maschinenbaugesellschaft Nürnberg A.G., Werke Augsburg. This mouthful of German was renamed Maschinenfabrik Augsburg Nürnberg AG (MAN) in 1908. "MAN" is the more convenient, albeit later name.

The engine & generator were originally erected on the North Sea island of Helgoland to operate an elevator in 1903. Henry Ford acquired it in 1938 for The Edison Institute, thereby avoiding WW2 bombing of the island. It was on display in the Ford Museum until auctioned off in 1983. After living in Florida & Maine, it came to it's permanent home at The Coolspring Power Museum in 2008. It is one of the earliest surviving diesel engines extent, & will be the oldest or 2nd oldest running diesel in the world.
A competitor for the "oldest" title....

Much thought has gone into how & where to display it, & this year plans are firming up, with members making generous donations. (Donors will be recognized in the new building.)

Corrections & additions are always welcome.

The Engine museum "Motorsamlingen" in Denmark has an identical engine (engine number: 52) from 1906: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cOm...ature=youtu.be

A whole building for that size engine? The guys at Rough and Tumble look like the same guys from Coolspring.

This pic will give an idea of its size & configuration.
The skid is temporary...just for moving.
This engine & generator need a hefty concrete foundation (like the one at Kinzers).


Also under consideration...
A teaching engine (later Ruston Hornsby diesel) with a factory supplied
dynamometer in the same building. It's all about education.

Giving this a bump as we get down to the end of the year. There are still a few days left to make your tax deductible contribution to Coolspring Power Museum for 2017.
