Moe's website went down earlier this year.

You can see an archived copy of it from January 2018 here:

My understanding is that he doesn't supply/build complete locomotives anymore but will still undertake some sub assembly steam projects.

Did you try contacting him at his old website phone number/email address?

What type of pump are you seeking?
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Worthington made many pumps.

Single / duplex / compound?

There is a video on youtube of one of moes Worthington pumps.....I would say it looks like a Worthington compound pump, that he is using to pump water

The pumps that Moe's offered were Westinghouse cross compound air compressors. I believe he made them to pump either air or water.

as a suggestion - you do not want one of those pumps...unless you want something that looks nice but is not reliable.
