1917 600 HP Snow Engine Finds Home at Coolspring

It took 20 years, but this 1917 600 HP Snow engine finally calls Coolspring Power Museum home.

The compressor cylinder ready to be unloaded into Knox Station. Again, a small doorway and unsupported floor were encountered, which required using a 10-ton manual chain hoist to position the parts. Interestingly, this structure originally housed two massive National Transit gas engines, and their foundations provided stable support for our storage purposes.
