  • I don’t see any steam engines. I do see Ruston Diesel twin horizontal engines though. Are there docs here? or is that another mistake? Does this building still exist intact with its engines? are there others locally? thanks

  • If by “docs” you mean Docks – the Chatteris docks have been pulled down.
    There are numerous pumping stations in the fens with engines – we do not have full information on these.
    The current whereabouts of the engines featured in this picture are unknown to us.
    Apologies if we have their power source incorrect we were told these were steam engines when the photo was contributed to the archive. Thank you for your comments. We will change description accordingly.
