A world class industrial heritage site

A sight not often seen

Tom has opened up the crankcase of the Reader steam engine, in the quest for a knocking noise. Seems the oil pump had not been working properly, but getting at it is a difficult task. The may be work needed on the bearings too. At least we get a rare look inside, and hopefully it will be running again soon.
