Fred Dibnah would have liked that.
I do remember Fred filming and including this drum in one of his TVs programmes.
Another one down to Oy.
We saw this running once - awesome machinery!
Fred Dibnah's been there, Gary. He did a Programme about it. Built by J and E Wood of Bolton.
Another great shot Dave.
We had 2 of these engines at Park Collieries. One driving the fan and one driving the generator. They were very quiet when they were running. In fact when the colliery was running it ran everything on steam generated from 6 Lancashire boilers, fuelled by slack coal they they couldn't sell
