George Watkins photographed this engine in 1962, and records it as a 150 HP engine[3] It was kept in excellent condition, and was unusual in having the LP cylinder bolted to the main bedplate, while the HP cylinder had its own short bedplate and feet, and was fixed to the LP cylinder with tie bars.
