This fine example of the Robey 6 nhp compound design is a three-speed engine with overhead slide valves. This example has been with the same family since new in 1910, over the years being used on threshing and other agricultural work as well as stone-crushing. The engine is owned by F.B. Gibbons & Sons Ltd and it was seen on the rally fields with the same driver for fifty years in both working and preservation days.
Here is a great website with more information on these great Robey steam vehicles.
