New Acquisition for Museum

rollerThe museum has just acquired a 1915 Aveling & Porter 10 ton steam roller which has been in the one family since new. According to Chairman Peter Miller it represents “one of the best ‘barn finds’ of the century” as the roller has had very little use over its 101 year life on the Curraghmore estate in Co Waterford. He added, ‘Our plan is to clean it down as soon as possible, and put it on display in our new machinery hall, and also to have it checked out to see what is required to restore it to full working order. We believe it was last ‘steamed’ some 25 years ago.”
