TQ7670 : Steam Tug Barking - Chatham Marina

taken 8 years ago, near to Lower Upnor, Medway, Great Britain

Steam Tug Barking - Chatham Marina
Steam Tug Barking - Chatham Marina
Built originally as a diesel tug in 1928, Ian Woollett has converted her to steam propulsion with a new boiler and a reused inverted vertical compound engine by an unknown maker but date stamped 1914. This is said engine with cylinders 8" & 16" x 8" and developing 75 ihp. This side shows the reversing lever and weighshaft for the Stephenson link motion and the air and bilge pumps worked off the HP crosshead. This is a very cramped machinery space.
