South Tyneside College - steam engine

  • Description

    "When this site was visited in 2002 it retained this steam engine driving an alternator, some steam turbine plant and a large Doxford single cylinder, opposed piston diesel engine. The Doxford was removed for preservation shortly after and I suspect the rest of the plant may no longer survive either. This engine was built c1956 by E Reader & Sons Ltd of Nottingham as works number 28217 and drove a 60 hz alternator at 514 rpm. The engine is an inverted vertical compound (enclosed). In the left background is a BTH condensing steam turbine set." Photo by Chris Allen, 2002.
