There's something about beam engines that gets me every time, this is a very nice example. Love the flywheel, great job. Cheers, Peter.

Nothing so graceful as a slow running beam engine. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Another detailed and smooth-running engine. Just Beautiful to see both standing still and running.
