Historical information
This working-model steam engine was hand-made c.1893 by Frank Scott of Mewburn Park, and used to drive a pump.

The entire engine and base were repaired, cleaned and restored by participants in a LEAP program hosted by Eastern Victorian Group Training, Bairnsdale, in June 1995. This included repairing a broken piston arm.
