S&KWSEG Kempton 2011 - Vintage stationary engines -
Today I took the Bamford and the Ruston Hornsby to Kempton steam museum to take part in one of the engine club's displays. We had a good varied display and good weather all day. The Kempton Steam Museum is a "must see" place to go, the two tripple expansion engines are the largest of their type in the world and the engines and engine house are breath taking. It is difficult to judge the scale from the video, but it's quite simply massive! I hope you enjoy the video
