1st steaming down, two to go..

27/04/2017

The boiler is working (we think) but hasn't been inspected yet so unfortunately the Beam Engine will not be operating under steam power as scheduled on 1st May :(
The Museum will still be open from 11:00am to 5:00pm and we will be running the tiny model engines at various points in the day :)

Due to boiler failure the Beam Engine will not be operating under steam power as scheduled on Easter Monday 17th April
