Ellenroad Engine House
Ellenroad Engine House
The biggest workable mill engine in the UK seen in motion. The flywheel weighs 80 tons. The engine is a twin tandem compound and on the right is one of the high pressure cylinders with Craig's trip gear on the steam valves under the control of the Whitehead governor. Prominent on the left is one of the piston valve low pressure cylinders and on the floor alongside are the Lumb's recorder and the electric overspeed governor.
