Stott Steam Engine2427 viewsalthough not new to the museum, we had this engine turning over on electric power on Sunday 10th September for the first time. The restoration project is making fantastic progress. The volunteers have replaced the big end bearings, the air pump condenser has been put into place and they are now working on the difficult job of lining up the rocking beam mechanism. Our plan is to have the engine in steam in 2007, funds and resources willing.
