The Component Parts of the Steam Engine at the National Slate Museum, Llanberis
The steam engine was probably built by the Mather Company and has some embellishments, suggesting that it was built to power something more prestigious before it found its way to the Nantlle Valley in the late 1850s.
The next stage is to record all the component parts of the engine, comparing them to a reconstruction drawing by the artist Falcon Hildred, in order to understand how the engine worked. This information will then be passed to the animation company commissioned to carry out the work, and will be available for the public to view by the summer of 2012.
