Bay city walking dredge.
Hi, I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I am sure someone will put me right if I am wrong.
A friend of mine is clearing out an old farm yard and has unearthed a twin cylinder engine that he thinks came off of a bay city dredge of about 1906-10, which is when the local swamp was drained, the engine has a broken crank which is why i assume it stopped work!. the dredge was buried in a stop bank and was dug out several years later, a neighbour remembers taking the brass fittings etc for scrap while he was at primary school (he is now 93!) The question is what make of engine is it?
