Steam tug Daniel Adamson
Seen at the Albert Dock - Steam at the Dock event. This is the 1903 steam tug/tender Daniel Adamson that is now near the end of a long and expensive restoration. She will be in service later in 2016. The two inverted vertical compound engines are now runners but it was static for this event. Unfortunately the passengers will not be allowed in the engine room because there really is not sufficient space to keep them safe. The big red handles are on the Brown Bros steam reversing engines.
