Play the animation and find out how this steam engine
works, pioneered by
James Watt, produced steam so economically.
The Cornish Beam Engine (1834) was originally developed to pump out
floodwater from the deep mines that are found in Cornwall.
The up and down motion works like of the piston in the cylinder is transmitted by
the beam to the piston in the water pump. How the
steam cylinder piston
works it goes down under the pressure of steam, and differences in atmospheric
pressure created by the partial vacuum beneath the piston.

This has to be the most
wildest steam engine conversion fun ever!
Ever since the 1700s, when Savery and Newcomen first designed
steam engines and showed the world how steam
works to pump water form flooded mines - and James Watt
built the first engine that could turn wheels. From there on
engine changed the face of Britain. It was the Golden Age of Steam -
culminating in the magnificent achievements of The Flying
Mamod Working Steam Models recapture the excitement of that era
giving immediate enjoyment and fun. Fire from safe solid fuel
tablets, the boilers of Mamod models soon reach working pressure
and you quickly experience the joys of steam in action.
