 This steam engine is typical of many that Robey built for various uses - they were especially popular in boats, and this one, a vertical steam reciprocating engine with a 3.5 inch bore, 3 inch stroke and producing 700 revolutions per minute, was found aboard a barge in a state of decay and restored by EPL Engineering
