The Westinghouse Farm Engine was a small, vertical-boilered steam engine built by the Westinghouse Company that emerged in the late nineteenth century. In the transition from horses to machinery, small portable engines were hauled by horses from farm to farm to give power where it was needed. Many small workshops used them as well. As a side line to the airbrake products, George Westinghouse made these horse-drawn, vertical-boilered and horizontal-cylinder engines which looked like a coffee pot on wheels. It came in 6, 10 and 15 horsepower sizes. The engines were produced from 1886 to 1917 when they were superseded by larger, standard farm engines. Many engines of this make were sent to South America where they were popular.
