Threlkeld Quarry and Mining Museum - steam navvy
The Ruston steam navvy is just emptying its bucket. I was really pleased with this stupendous view from on top of the bank that the demonstration excavators were working against. This is a lovely machine but not as nimble as Graham Lee's Erie that I have seen work several times. There are very few steam navvies in the UK and even fewer that can work. There may be only two or three operable examples to be seen and I've only ever seen three work - having failed to see the one at Leicester before it was sidelined by its boiler.
