Default Stationary Steam Engine at Sloss Furnace

Was watching a show called ghost adventures on the travel channel. They were at a place called Sloss Furnace in Birmingham Al. The guy that was showing them around was standing next to a huge stationary steam engine. Any body know anything about it?
