Eileen was built as a traction engine for export to Russia in 1917 but was not sent because of the Russian Revolution. It was later converted to a portable engine.
The wording on the regulator is in Russian and unusually the reversing gear is worked by a handwheel, which must have been a Russian requirement. The engine was intended to haul ploughs and other implements and has a large firebox for burning straw as well as a water-cooled spark arrestor. In addition, the cylinder is at the front of the engine, in common with traction engines, and not at the rear as is normal with portable engines.
