Stationary Engines Section
Stationary Engines Section: Tony Giblin
Whilst not at the most glamorous end of the engineering spectrum, the humble stationary engine’s versatility kept the nation’s economy rolling, powering everything from Milking Parlours to driving Concrete Mixers. It could be found pumping water, generating electricity, grinding corn, crushing stone, splitting logs – the list is endless.
Before the Japanese invasion, engines and associated products from such illustrious British firms (now sadly closed) as R A Lister of Dursley (not many miles from the show site), Petter, Ruston Hornsby, Bamford, Villiers, JAP, and Wolseley could be found chugging away in all four corners of the globe.
In addition, you will also find on display products from “across the pond” such as Fairbanks Morse, International and Amanco.
Come and see these fascinating machines at work!
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the feasibility of running a show in 2021, entries for the Stationary Engines section cannot be accepted at present. Any changes to the current situation will be published on the homepage of the website so please check back for the latest updates.
