I know of them as medium speed 2 stroke marine diesels still in production in the 1960s, in the 100 to 500 hp range. They were built in Britain, Yorkshire springs to mind for some reason. I have some info at home so, if no-one else has managed to help by then I will post what I have.

Could someone point me to the edition of SE that featured the Widdop ?

I guess we're talking 2009 or earlier.

I have found a Widdop single driving a Belfast generator at the Internal Fire - Museum of Power in Wales.

Courtesy of Graces Guide, there are also pictures of a Viddor twin on the same page (but no explanation as to whether the companies are linked or not).

Sounds like you've set yourself a task to find the one issue of the magazine, unless someone can remember seeing it in there collection maybe the only way is a letter or email to SE mag see if they can help.
