1940 Atlas-Imperial Diesel

Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT

This engine was acquired by Mystic Seaport in August 2012.  Since then volunteers have been hard at work restoring it.  It was fired up for the first time on August 13, 2013.  This was undoubtably the star of this year's Antique Marine Engine Expo and was fired up a number of times throughout the expo.  It weighs about 18,000 lbs., and generates 135 HP at only 350 RPM.
