SummaryEdit

Description
English: Audio recording of a steam, gas-pumping engine made by Easton & Amos of London, and used by the South Metroplitan Gas Company, Old Kent Road, London from 1864 to the mid 1950s, and now at Thinktank, Birmingham. The engine is started from cold. First, steam is allowed through the cylinders, their drain cocks open, to warm them. The flywheel is rotated by hand, to set the engine in motion, and the recording ends with the engine ticking over at low speed.
Polski: Odgłosy silnika parowego wyprodukowanego przez firmę Easton & Amos z Londynu, który od 1894 roku do połowy lat 50. XX wieku był używany przez firmę South Metroplitan Gas Company z Londynu do przepompowywania gazu koksowniczego, a obecnie znajduje się w zbiorach Thinktank, muzeum nauki w Birmingham. Silnik jest zimny, więc najpierw przez cylindry z otwartymi zaworami spustowymi jest przepuszczana para w celu ich podgrzania. Następnie koło zamachowe jest obracane ręcznie, aby wprawić silnik w ruch. Nagranie kończy się, gdy silnik pracuje normalnie z niską prędkością obrotową.
