The International Steam Pages
Muzeum starých strojů a technologií, 2014
Click here for the "Surviving Steam Road Engines" index page.
The 'Museum of Old Machines' (Muzeum starých strojů a technologií) (http://www.starestroje.cz/) is housed in the former Vonwiller textile factory in Žamberku in the north-east of the Czech Republic and has a restoration workshop in Brno. There are pictures of their collection on their Czech language website which I have used in part for identification but it's very hit and miss. Help in identifying the other engines or any further information would be very welcome.
The photographs are by Chris Capewell and Nigel Mundy who visited Žamberku with a joint LCGB / IRS group in September 2014 and I am grateful to Dick Eastwood for information on the steam ploughing engines and ploughs and Derek Rayner for further advice.
Steam Ploughing Engines
There are quite a few of these, more are listed on the museum's website.
