We cant see what was powering this early spudder, could have been Gas, Steam or even a Horse. Either way it's OLD! I can just make out the names on this photo, Looks like it says Charlie Halbrooke.

Thanks Tim! I've never seen pictures of an actuall Clerk Engine!!!
For those of you that are familair with Reid engines, does this Clerk look familar?

This is the engine design that Joesph Reid built his engines after. Not to derail this thread BUT are there any Clerk engines still out there? I'd love to see a video of one running! I wonder if they sound just like a Reid? Or should I say does a Reid sound just like a Clerk?

Here is a supply catalog Picture of a Right Rand Reid I picked up from someone here on the Stak. I think I got this from Zach Williams or maybe Rich Hudak.
