It is with great sadness and upset that I have to report a major theft from
the Anson Museum.
We have worked endlessly to try and create something that does not exist in
any National Museum,and were beginning to get together displays of a wide
variety.A large amount of Lister engines have now been acquired.
The aims of the museum were to show the whole development of the internal
combustion engine in all its forms,showing technical developments and
combustion chamber designs.

This is all now thrown into doubt.

Les having recently celebrated his 80th birthday is absolutely
devastated.  As I am.

Items taken:

CROSSLEY ROTARY VALVE GAS ENGINE No 16243
GARDNER O TYPE GAS ENGINE  No 13617

Report #5 (entered July 22, 2001)

Monteagle Tennessee antique farm equipment stolen
Although there are no engines in this theft, it is farm related and I think deserves a little space. KKC

Subject: Submission from stolen engine log.


I did not have an engine stolen, but several pieces of horsedrawn farm equipment, and other antique itmes. Over the Father's Day weekend, several pieces of antique equipment were stolen from a farm belonging to my father. I was able to recover some of these pieces the following Sunday. They were at the flea market in Monteagle, Tennessee. I want to make it clear that there are TWO separate flea markets in Monteagle. The items were NOT at the flea market next to Interstate 24, but at the older flea market, across from the Monteagle post office. The items were in the possession of Mr. Tommy Dodson, who runs the flea market. Items not recovered include a pair of steel wheels which were removed from my grandfather's horsedrawn hay rake, a pair of steel corn planter wheels and axle ( the old style solid rims, not the later rims which are slotted in the middle ), and my horsedrawn Oliver disc. If anyone can help, please contact me!
Thanks, Tom Gipson

New Holland 1/2 horse engine

1/2 horse New Holland engine owned by Rough & Tumble and it has a serial number of 7952, it was stolen from the R&T grounds. "The Pa State Police have entered the serial number into the national crime computer so if any Police Department checks the serial number it will come back stolen. If someone took it to restore or repair and just “forgot” to tell R&T I will not press charges. It must be returned by February 3rd, the next Board Meeting. After that anyone with that engine will be prosecuted".
