History
1995-11-10

Acquired on a Coventry Climax built generating set. This set was standby at the Isle Of Man Port Authority, Douglas until the 1970s. It was purchased from the PA and left to rot on a hillside above Laxey. When acquired the unit was too far gone to restore and was stripped for spares.
