Small portable steam engine illustrated in ‘Old Glory’ magazine No. 55 September 1994, with a plate bearing the words 'Haywood Derby'. It was owned by the Belbin brothers in Sydney who bought it in 1977 from the Goulburn Steam Museum. The machine was unusual, having a side-mounted cylinder, with the crankshaft bearings mounted on the top of a steam dome.

1858 Portable steam engines and threshing machines.[1]. The advertisement shows an engraving of a portable engine very similar to the one in Sydney referred to above. It is therefore probable that the engine in Sydney was made by James Haywood (Jun). It is not clear whether there was a connection with J. and G. Haywood of Derby
