Added by Simon Roberts on 31 May 2012.
No...Simon....this is a main steam pump.....I know where it is going now but am not able to make public just yet.....but it will be a suprise

Added by Barrie Green on 31 May 2012.
what size pump and water tank.

Added by Les Davis on 01 June 2012.
The big surprise is the re-introduction of steam pumps, or is it a steam generation system, such as used to be installed on some ships?

Added by Rob Johnson on 01 June 2012.
Main Steam! I do hope you meant to put 'mainstream', Barrie! I'd hate to think the good folk of Cheshire were once again being served by steam-powered fire engines, cos I really believed this Merc was a diesel! Unless that's the big surprise . . .

Yes Yelp it was a typo.......but we do have a steam pump !!!! its an 1876 Shand Mason which has been a little 'poorly' for the last 10 months or so.....happy days..we are on the cusp of receiving some funding which will get some repairs done and with a bit of luck, the old engine should be back on the run before the end of the summer.
