One of the governors that controls the steam to keep the beam engine working at the right speed
The massive steelwork of one end of the beams. The bronze bearing takes up the wear between the pivot on the end of the beam and the vertical link. On the top of the link are the oil cups to keep the bearing lubricated.
The Valve gear that controls the steam into the cylinders. The long leavers are used to manually start the engine, after which the cams keep the motion going. The wooden lagged cylinder is behind the valve gear.
