Ye Olde Missile Launcher

Well, the chimney folded down made me imagine a missile launcher! This steam engine is a particularly colourful and attractive example, the first machine I looked at when we arrived at the Southland Steam Engine Club rally at Brydone near Gore yesterday. Southland, New Zealand


It was my understanding that this engine works fine but that it needs some updated certification so wasn’t being run at yesterday’s event
