This is an awesome place to visit when the engine is running, and the guided tour is well worth the time spent on it. Great shots Neil.

Great pics, thanks
The ingenuity of engineers in the past is staggering.
Just casting the 30t crank and flywheel is astounding but just imagine trying to machine them !
That machine will amaze people for hundreds of years

Did you know the engines were used as a "location" in the first Titanic film (not the Leonardo de Caprio / Kate Winslet one)?

Your piece of trivia for the day.
