Another view of the COAL fired steam plant, featuring a "21st Century Steam Company" "Windermere" slide valve steam engine.
The plant also has a "Southworth Engines Weir Pump".
This plant runs very well indeed, the longest run it has has is six hours continuous running on the bench,
The boiler is a very free steamer & you really can't beat coal fired steam boilers for the heat, not to mention the smell!
Not recommended for beginners.
