It is probably a 6 n.h.p. 10 ton Road Roller with a works number roughly in the region of 10500.

So far I haven't found any information on this special engine, but as it is in preservation some better information will turn up.

Sure! It stands for 'Nominal Horse Power' and was used for steam engines.
Here is a nice link which actually explains how it is measured, or rather, calculated:

Saves me a lot of typing! ;)

I agree with you that it is a great machine. Aveling & Porter had a 2/3 market share for road rollers in those years producing some hundred each year.

Found it at last! :)

And my estimation wasn't so bad, only that it is older than I thought:

Aveling & Porter 5 n.h.p. 10 ton Type R10 Road Roller 'Maid Marion', Works No. 5590, Reg.No. [CH3282] from 1904.
