HMS Stalker - port engine room - turning gear
Although urban explorers have been here, this was an official visit to gather information to pass onto parties that may be able to help preserve some of the machinery on board the last known LST (3). Built in Canada in 1945, Stalker has two 2750 horsepower four cylinder inverted vertical triple expansion engines that are about 22' long and 14' high. This is the port engine room showing the vertical single cylinder steam engine and worm gear used to turn the main engine for repairs and adjustments. Behind it top left is part of the steam/hydraulic reversing ram gear.

Sadly, despite trying to get various parties interested in saving one of the engines it was all to be scrapped.
