They say it's gas powered. I'm never sure when Americans say 'gas' do they mean petrol, (gasoline) or natural gas. The engine was used to compress natural gas so I guess that was its fuel. Is it really running in that video or is it being turned over with, (lots of) compressed air?
Anyway, it's poetry in motion for me.

Yes, because it was also used to drive the first acetate mastering lathe.
