A. Gaar & Co. / Gaar, Scott & Co. Steam Engine Register

 
This page lists surviving A. Gaar & Co. and Gaar, Scott & Co. steam engines in the USA and Canada, with details such as serial number, date of manufacture and location.

 
Note: A. Gaar & Co. became known as Gaar, Scott & Co. in 1870 and this company was purchased by the M. Rumely Co. of La Porte, Indiana in late 1911, so that subsequent engines built at the Gaar, Scott & Co. works carried the M. Rumely name on the smokebox in addition to Gaar, Scott & Co. Because serial numbering was continuous throughout these changes, the companies' engines 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 DS = double simple
TC = tandem compound
