Mini traction engine and baker fan

Googling I've read that "these were designed by a Mr. A.D. Baker to test steam engines as they left the factory. A Baker Fan is a simple air-resistance device used run off an engine via a belt and the faster its turned, the harder it is to turn and puts a load on the engine".
