Friday Night Steam

Another great British Steam Engine film!

Did you notice that almost all off the iron workers were middle aged men? None of them wore safety gear like they do today.

It still astounds me that these engines were really made piece, by piece. Everything was mostly hand crafted and forged.

Iron men making iron horses......


  1. Neat video. Now I want a set of plans. That is one big drop hammer. I wonder it was steam powered.

    1. It was - I went back and looked closely at that part and you can see the open furnace next to it.
      Again, thank you for alerting me that I had posted the wrong video at first! (Sometimes my train doesn't leave the station)......
