Composite picture of the stationary winding engine. Again, to save bits and bytes, I didn't take a complete picture of all the dead space. Plus there's some distortion from the processing. It's a big steam engine that turns a wheel that moves a cable that was used to haul cargo up and down hills in mining areas, without having to have complicated and smaller engines on the trains. This was used to haul limestone out of a quary in the Stanhope area by the Stanhope and Tyne railway line. It was built between 1832 and 1834 and rated at 50 HP.
