Thanks to the efforts of Danie Pretorius and his team, our Stationary Engine collection at Sandstone has its own museum. If you search for “Stationary Engine Museum” on the Sandstone website your first document listed will be the stock list. https://www.sandstone-estates.com/index.php/stationary-engines-62/43-stationary-engines/3512-the-stationary-engine-collection
Now thanks to the efforts of one of the museum volunteers, Keith Simmons, we are putting together information sheets for each item in the museum which will ultimately be posted around the museum area as well as our web site. The web posts in some cases will include a short video of the item. Keith has put the information sheets and sourced the various video clips where they are available. Sandstone would like to express its thanks to Keith for his hard work and we look forward to expanding this information base.
