Come, see and feel the powerful and majestic “James
Watt” Beam Engines in full steam. These engines are still housed in their original High-Victorian engine house. Talk to the staff that operates and keep these magnificent machines maintained. The two 150 horsepower ‘James Watt & Co’ Beam Engines were installed to operate the new pumps in 1887. This new system proved very successful and is still the basis for today's underground drainage system on Portsea Island.
