A 1924 Le Roi Model 2-C, used for a hoist in a silver mine in California. Ed Malcolm also has the hoist. This engine weighs approximately 3,000 pounds with the hoist.
A front view of the circa 1930 engine. Ed does not know what the engine was used for, but evidently it was under cover all its life. If anyone knows what this engine was used for, he would appreciate any help.
An early 1940s D-140 ice blower weighing 2,420 pounds. It is approximately 6 feet long and will blow ice up to 40 feet. It was used for icing down food in the back of trucks and railroad cars before there were refrigerator units.
The end view of the engine shows the original sign that tells who sold it, supposedly from Vermont. The engine had one owner.
Made in 1924, the original “Mr. Le Roi” has been in Ed’s family since 1930. This engine was used on a paving machine.
