Brecon Mountain Railway - steam museum
Opened in April 2014 this museum contains five stationary steam engines and three locomotives. This is the largest of the stationary engines and is a horizontal tandem compound condensing mill engine by Holborow of Dudbridge, Stroud in 1894. The slide valve cylinders are 8" & 14" x 16" and it was used to assist a waterwheel at The Pin Mill in Charfield until about 1950. The flywheel is 70" and there is an adjoining rope pulley 42" diameter. It was rated at 80 bhp at 100 rpm on steam at 100 psi. For many years it was privately preserved at Worle near Weston-Super-Mare but then moved to the Brecon Mountain Railway with most of the rest of an extensive collection. It is an 'old friend' and it was very pleasant to see it reappear.
