The Steam Museum, Straffan
The Steam Museum, Straffan
This is an excellent museum adjoining Lodge Park Walled Garden, Straffan and is home to several excellent model and full sized steam engines. This is a horizontal single cylinder Corliss valve engine by Victor Coates of Belfast and built in 1900. It was used by Frazer & Haughton Ltd, Culleybackey, Co Antrim. The cylinder is 18" x 30" and it developed 100 horsepower at 90 rpm on steam at 100 psi. The flywheel is 10' diameter and grooved for 6 driving ropes. Because the valve gear is against the wall, the museum has arranged a mirror to show it in action.
