New Way Stationary Engines

Aim - To serve and support the New Way Stationary Engine restoration community.
There was a New Way Stationary Motor inclined to Hit and Miss. It was designed that way but intermittently it would missfire and this in the confines of the beekeepers shed fired my imagination, grabbing my senses. I just loved the sound of the New Way 3.5Hp working - likely fuelled by a too rich mixture.
With each missfire came the tell tale puff of blue smoke and via the old sawbench, the beekeeping manufacturing business was underway, alive and well. Alf was in his element. Romance, nah, hard work but Hoots the New Way went a long way in firing the imagination of times past running in the present. The present, after all, that's where life is, it's not in the past, but romancing the past, that's the present if you're living it.
The priveledge of life. Present and past is now!!! - alive.

French Connection - Working the streets of paris

Got a New Way

Great Photo's From Paris

Great old notated photo's from C1915 at 79, boulevard de Magenta, 10e arrondissement Paris are now ready for download.

The Photos taken not far from the centre of Paris show a New Way horizontal doing it's bit (ramming) before the relaying of the cobble stones. These are great photos courtesy of  the library of France  Biblioth√®que nationale de France.

These A4 sized photos have been provided on Newwaystation for personal use only (NO COMMERCIAL USE). If you want a direct copy of the originals without notation, these can be purchased from their Reproduction Department. Enquiries re any commercial use contact email to:

We believe the engine in the photos is probably a 3.5 Hp Horizontal Series "J" New Way.
To see these great photos, have a look in the library. It is the second last in the Compilation grouping called "French Connection"

Enjoy George
