Tandem compound textile mill engine at Queen Street Mill Textile Museum in Burnley, Lancashire, UK.
"Peace" as this engine is affectionately named, is but one of a number of magnificent engines long retired, but now preserved, throughout the UK. Originally, this engine was named Prudence after the first engineers wife. The engine was renamed after the first world war, in memory of fallen co-workers who died fighting in France. Their sacrifice devastated families and working communities everywhere.
This largely complete textile museum is well worth a visit and should you go, you will be hosted by friendly, highly knowledgeable staff. It is simply amazing to learn all the processes involved in spinning and weaving cotton; plan on spending at least half a day here! The steam engine alone is well worth the visit, but there is so much more to see & do.

Great! Interesting engine with all the linkage at the crosshead and valves. The display of the operating textile mill is fascinating. It reminds me of the operating Beaumont Texas Rice mill I saw in 1979. I was not equipped for photographing then. It had the Greenwald gridiron valve engine now located in Turkey. Thanks to Brenda Stant for the E&E article.

Damn that's elegant. It's hard to imagine today the pride in the whole facility to put in and showcase that system.
