the database for the first time, please read about it here
database is intended to aid restoration, research, education,
scholarship, and the community of steam by listing all extant
steam traction and portable engines. Engines listed are primarily
agricultural machines, but the list includes logging, construction,
and freighting engines. The focus is North America, but international
listings are welcome.
If you know of an engine
that isn't listed, please help us by submitting it here.
A printable form for collecting data is available here.
Please only complete the items you know you have accurate information
The database may be searched
by any of the listed fields, or any combination of fields. Pull-down
menus are available for many of the fields - using them will help
ensure proper matching. Each search will list all records that
match all criteria - no partial matches. Clicking on a match will
show you that engine's data, and you can then scroll through the
matches using the arrow buttons.
