    This is an 1886 Steam Vacuum gauge made by the American Steam Gauge Co. For the John H. Dialogue Ship Building Co. of Camden, NJ. The gauge came off of the New York Central Railroad Tugboat # 3. The Tug was built in 1886 and the Ship Yard closed in 1913. The NYC No. 3 was a 150 ton tugboat. She had a sister ship (NYC #13) built in the same year by the same shipyard. The New York Central Number 3 was sold and later renamed the "A. W. Whitman", the "Corona" and finally the "Susan Elizabeth" before being scrapped in 2008.

      That's real nice, it's amazing how many years that tug was in service.

      Yea, there are a handful of early tugs still operating. One of the most famous is the Hercules which was built by the same shipyard in 1907. She still is steaming and on display somewhere in California.

      Made to last!
      I like the old picture of # 13.
      How big is the gauge?
