There are several, three I can think of, in North Carolina, or there were, I haven't checked lately. The furniture plants liked them. Cal Reynolds.

There's also a Corliss engine operating a sawmill in Somerset, Va.

Denton Farm Park has a operating steam 350HP Bates Corliss engine (among
other steam equipment). Wasn't able to find a image of it on the web.
The engine operates over July 4 holiday during the "Southeast Old
Threshers' Reunion". This is a single cylinder engine with around 18'
flywheels if I remember correctly. An impressive machine.

Many consider Denton to be the largest antique farm equipment show east
of the Mississippi.
