Wolsingham Engine - Beamish Colliery Screens

  • Description

    The Wolsingham Engine, in the Colliery Screens, has recently been reconnected to the boiler and should be available for occasional demonstration. Here it is in 2005, one of the last times it ran before the supply pipework was condemned as life expired. It drove the picking belts, or jiggers – we won’t be demonstrating these on account of the noise and dust! Just one of the many exhibits that is planned to be at the 2011 http://www.beamish.org.uk/great-north-steam-fair/" >Great North Steam Fair which runs from the 14th-17th April. Visit the http://beamishtransport.blogspot.com" >Beamish Transport Blog for all the latest. Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control the exhibits you may see on the day of the event are subject to change without prior notice.
