Advance Thresher Co. / Advance-Rumely Co. Steam Engine Register

 
This page lists surviving Advance Thresher Co. and Advance-Rumely Co. steam engines in the USA and Canada, with details such as serial number, date of manufacture and location.

 
Note: The Advance Thresher Co. was purchased by the M. Rumely Co. of La Porte, Indiana in late 1911, so that subsequent engines built at the Advance works carried the M. Rumely name on the smokebox in addition to or in place of Advance Thresher Co. In 1915 Rumely went into receivership and the Advance-Rumely Co. of LaPorte, Indiana was formed, which meant a further change of name on engines produced after this date. Because serial numbering was continuous throughout these changes, all engines based on Advance designs have been included in a single listing, divided into three sections according to the company name(s) marked on the engine.

 
Entries in
red indicate an engine that has been exported from North America in the preservation era, with the current location listed if known.

 
Abbreviations: ST = steam tractor SC = single cylinder
PE = portable engine TC = tandem compound
