Coal Bunker

 

One seldom thinks of a coal bunker as a thing of beauty, but on many early steam fire engines it was indeed. The bunker on our restored engine is no exception. During the restoration process we discovered that the old bunker had at some time been stripped to bare metal leaving no trace of the original artwork. Fortunately the expertise of Steve Heaver came to the rescue and an authentic design was achieved.
