Campbelltown Steam & Machinery Museum

Today we visited Campbelltown Steam & Machinery Museum for their open day. We saw lots of old steam machines, a steam train, tractors and traction engines. We also got to ride the train and a trailer pulled by a steam engine and another pulled by a tractor. R particularly loved the replica organ and stood for ages examining how it worked. 

Finding out how steam engines work

Working replica organ that fascinated R. We went around the back to see the workings and to watch the paper music being fed in

R admires the stationary engines

R finds out that pumping water by hand takes a lot of effort and is much slower than pumping by machine
