Has anyone been here to see if any North American engines are there? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnRLMLmJQ-w

Some of these look like engines from Sodor.

These engines are located in UK, owned by a man who imported them from all over the world. Www.prestonservices.co.uk. there are some American engines, case, Huber, Avery.

I wonder how deep this guys pockets are. I wonder if he ever sells off some of the un-restored engines. Great to see collections like these but sometimes these guys never give other people a chance to restore the engines that he will never get to. Thanks for sharing the video.

Also, almost all the prices for the engines are on application.
You know the saying about pricing: "If you have to ask..."

Case was very big in Argentina. I have a large (21" X 29") colored map of Argentina dated 1906 showing where 48 Case engine-thresher units were located. This was originally in the Case archives and was thrown in the garbage in one of the mergers 25 or more years ago. I got this and much other catalogs, paper ect from a garbage picker who worked there.
