A small selection
of R&V engine tag pictures that I have
The tag to the left is unusual , it seems that these
tags were used on equipment other than engines that R&V made. This
one from th enew factory in East Moline.
The tag to the left here is from a wood lathe made
in the Champaign, Illinois factory 1899 - 1901. R&V made a lot of
other products besdies engines and cars, especially around WW1. They
made metal lathes, shell making lathes and a lot of equipment in the
manufacrue of munitions. These were supplies to other machine shops
and manufacturing shops around the USA.
Any communication to owners
of R&V engines can be made through Site Custodian.
