Markham Grange steam Museum - side lever engine
Markham Grange steam Museum - side lever engine
This is a grasshopper side lever marine beam engine under restoration and is missing its side levers, connnecting rod and crankshaft, to name a few. It is now fully restored with a reconstructed feathering paddle wheel and is turned by an electric motor.

It was built in 1907 by Hepple & Sons of south Shields and was the port engine of a pair on the paddle tug Old Trafford, which later became Reliant and was for many years preserved at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The single cylinder is 30" bore x 54" stroke.
