Greg-

Thanks for the point of clarification.  I do have a "Portable Engine" section, and I will move the portables to that section.

The list of terms describing steam engines is long and confusing.
Below is an engraving from a "Locomobile",  a term which I had always associated with the steam auto company that the Stanley brothers originally created.

The term "vibrating piston engine" has often been used to describe Ericsson's ironclad "Monitor" engine, but Ericsson also made a "vibrating piston engine" that was in no way resembles his trunk-style "Monitor" engine.


Jason-

I must say, that is one of the more odd mechanical wheel arrangements I have seen, and I don't quite follow the logic, but there must have been some sort of objective with the rails.
