Peak's Island Maine has some very large diesels they use for backup electrical power, I've often wondered did the come from the 16inch battery. I was working there at the time and never paid much attenion to them. The Navy powerhouse on Long Island, Maine has 2 large WWII diesels, I have some real bad pics from there, but some of the other guys will have good pics.

Hi John, do you know what the model number was of those engines? I ask because I think Thresherman Park, just north of Boonville, Indiana has a WWII vintage 5-6 cylinder they sometimes show off.

Bolling Smith was kind enough to send out a copy of the Coast Artillery Training Bulletin for Diesel-Electric Plants 6-12-and 16 inch batteries. This document covers most of everything you need to know about the operation of these power plants. I have uploaded the pdf file to the museums servers for anyone who wants it. http://www.ftmac.org/downloads/WWII-Power.pdf

Joe, all we know, at this point, is what's in the RCW for Battery 519, and a few other sources. Here it is:
