Former Clydebuilt Museum, Braehead
Former Clydebuilt Museum, Braehead
This museum closed in 2010 and this particular exhibit is now on display at the new Glasgow Transport Museum. This is the 1821 side lever engine from Henry Bell's Comet II. This sank in 1825 and the engine was salvaged and used in a paint factory for many years. The original Comet's engine is on display at the Science Museum in London. This example has a wooden flywheel, presumably the original was lost/scrapped.
