Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies Engine

This steam engine was made by Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies at its Orwell Works in Ipswich, England, in 1905
This single-cylinder 4-nominal horse power Ransomes engine consumed about 60 litres of water and 7 kilograms of coal, or 18 kilograms of wood per hour when performing at its maximum capacity.
The engines were designed to a measure of nominal horse power, or NHP, so that farmers could easily choose the model to suit their needs.
