Brings back memories when I worked on this engine as an apprentice and then as a fitter. Remember this engine hauling up a cylindrical tank holding about 5000 gallons a lift on one side cage on the other rope.Engine drivers, Tom Cox, Albert Hole, Mr Rhys.
The foreman fitter was Ivor Pratt, great old character.
