Engine Work on the Side

One of our crew members has been restoring a 1900 NGH designed triple expansion steeple engine, of a design that would power a 30-foot launch at 16-18 mph. We thought you’d enjoy pictures of the before and in-process restoration. We think you’ll agree, Don is doing amazing work!

This engine has generated so much interest during tours of our shop, we thought we’d start a steam blog site which will be hosted by Mike, who is constructing the Museum’s new steam gallery with contributions from Don and hopefully you as well!
