The double-acting, twin cylinder engine combined with the 18” boiler gave an official output rating of 10 horsepower and rapid turn of speed, both forwards and backwards! It would easily outrun many larger internal combustion-engine competitors with its outstanding and practically silent acceleration. The beautifully built coachwork was constructed by the Stanleys themselves.
