Default 2" Hancock Inspirator

I have just acquired a 2" Hancock Inspirator steam feedwater injector, mid teens vintage, that was used in a stationary power plant in my home town. I had the pleasure of operating this unit when I was a kid, so I know it's in good condition. But right now it's too big for any projects that I'm working on. Do any of you know of a worthy steam locomotive restoration project or large stationary restoration project that is looking for one of these? This is a real beauty, ran at 200PSI on a triple of 175HP boilers, probably rated for 300PSI.

Do you still have them? I volunteer at the Lake Whatcom Railway and the N.P. 0-6-0 #1070 uses two of them.
