Steam Engines in Thailand

22 10 2008

Ruston Proctor Portable Twin Cylinder Steam Engine circa 1905

Ruston, Proctor & Co Ltd, Engineers, Lincoln

I found this steam engine in Talard Park in Nakorn Sri Tammarat in Thailand. It is unrestored with a few patches to hold it together. The company name gives an indication of the date of manufacture, Ruston Proctor was given Limited liability in 1899 and the company changed partner names in 1918 so this engine was produced sometime between these dates.

This Twin Cylinder Portable Steam Engine was used in Nakorn Sri Thammarat, probably in the rice milling industry and was recently brought to the City Museum and placed in the “Old Machine Park” outside the front of the museum. I will add more details as I find them, if anybody can identify this engine please contact me.

The engine is located in Talard Park in Nakorn Sri Thammarat
